I'm ready to see some.spring training video and games. We have any dates on televised games?

Looks like Saturday, Sunday, and Monday's games are televised! I thought I had heard before that only 3 or 4 of them would be including the last game against KC at the Globe before the season starts

I went almost day by day through the schedule in the mlb app and there's very little in between the beginning and end of spring training, maybe one or two.

This is making the rounds online as the supposed socks for the Rangers City Connect uniform. Posts on Reddit are saying the logo looks like one the DFW Spurs minor league team used.

The Texas outline with the spur on it is very much like the old Spurs logo.

Of course, that logo was copied by the NBA team in San Antonio who will start chirping that the Rangers are copying "their" logo.

Any ways to watch the games other than nationally televised? Is Bally plus an option?

Has been discussed at length earlier, but in short - know one knows yet. Depends on if Diamond Sports Group files for bankruptcy and how the court rules their various properties to be distributed. March 17 is D Day for them deciding what to do about their missed debt payments.

MLB keeps saying their games will be broadcast or streamed somewhere, but it's not really in their hands.

Watch the proceedings over the next month and be prepared to jump at short notice.

One guaranteed way to see home games - buy tickets!

My apologies, I meant spring training.

I actually have tickets to the regular season already.

FWIW, I'm not showing that today's game is available at all...no TV, no radio, per my MLB app. The weekend games look to be televised and/or the radio feed will be available.

MLB66ir is still a thing right? Wonder if spring training would make it there.

Owen White had a really rough outing today. Not the end of the world but certainly disappointing.

Also, Justin Foscue can just flat out hit the baseball; 2-2 today and two homers in two days. The dude can swing it.
MrCoachEricTaylor
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I sincerely hope we don't just trade him away. His bat potential should overrule any concerns of his glove. I hoping after this year, we move in from Garver and Foscue improves enough to get promoted and take over the full time DH spot

FYI: of you have Bally SW, Rangers are on now vs. the Reds. Rangers up 9-2 in the 6th. Huff just hit a long ball to RCF.

Zeke Duran is having a very good spring. His hitting is going to make it hard to send him back down to AAA, even if he needs to work on his outfield skills.

From todays broadcast, my diamond in the rough is Fernery Ozuna converted MIF with 100 mph fastball and wicked change….. granted he was mopping up in the 9th but more time on the mound might push him to the big league club. Time will tell!

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see how the outfield spots get filled with all of the non-roster invitees that were brought in to Spring Training this year. Maybe Duran makes the final roster regardless as a utility guy since he can obviously play the infield as well. Or I could see him getting sent to Round Rock to play every day in the outfield for a month or so, then getting called up.

My darkhorse candidate to make the team is reliever Marc Church. 100mph fastball and wicked slider. Very young, will be 22 soon, but in 76.1 career minor league innings he has 127 Ks with only 22 walks. Probably won't break camp with the big league team, but I'm betting he'll be one of the first call-ups if someone in the bullpen isn't getting it done.

Was working, so didn't really see much of that, but he sure didn't look too big. He had to be sub-six foot in height. Guess it doesn't matter if you can crank it up to the triple digits. How long has he been pitching since the position switch?

Is anyone else concerned about the regional tv networks imploding? Sports radio in Denver reporting the company that owns the Rockies' broadcast rights wants the team to take them back by something like March 30 2023 or they will file Chapter 7 liquidation of assets.

Best I can tell from google…. Az til '18 when Rangers converted him to pitcher…. but from 18 til 21 he doesnt seem to have accumulated any stats so IDK….. google also tells me he is 5'8…. but 100 is 100 and that changeup was super bendy!

according to the 2022 Rangers prospect writeup at FanGraphs, he had TJ in 2018 and didn't pitch from 2019-21

8 man bullpen, and the locks are:

Leclerc (R)
Barlow (R)
Hernandez (R)
Odorizzi (R)
Hearn (L)

Then the other guys who will get a shot:

Kennedy (R)
Cody (R)
Burke (L)
Sborz (R) (out of options)
King (L)

Dunning, Otto, Ragans, Winn - one maybe stays up as long relief, but let's just say Round Rock oughta be really good this year.

Brock Burke is a lock. He was our best reliever last year by a country mile.
