Newberg: Perfect timing for Rangers with Robinson Chirinos

Robinson Chirinos

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. Maybe Ian Kinsler was taken out of context, and what he really said, if they’d just included the whole quote, was he hoped the Rangers didn’t win a game at home by actually recording the game’s […]

Newberg: Rangers hammer Lee, still fall short

Ron Washington

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. Texas hammered Cliff Lee for eight runs, all earned, over five innings, and it wasn’t enough. Not close. Tanner Scheppers struck out twice as many as Lee did on the day, but then again those […]

March Madness at Rangers’ Camp

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. I was in Surprise in 2010 the morning that Ron Washington issued a shocking statement about a very big mistake he’d made the previous summer. I was in Surprise in 2011 the morning that it was […]

Exhuming Brandon McCarthy

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. Preferring not to dwell on the state of Elvis Andrus’s elbow or Shin-Soo Choo’s elbow, or Mitch Moreland’s oblique or Adrian Beltre’s quad, or the Rangers’ odd comments after last night’s game that the trip to […]

Michael Choice showing he may be ready for meaningful role with Rangers

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. The email messages I’ve gotten lately have been focused more on Alfonso Soriano’s refusal to play outfield in 2006 — at least until Texas traded him (he’s made 1057 of his 1061 defensive appearances since then as an […]

’0-162′, What was Kinsler thinking?

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. “DFW teams could all use more edge. Kins has some of it. I miss Tyson Chandler and Steve Ott.”  I tweeted that nine months ago. I thought about Chandler and Ott again yesterday. And about Mike Napoli […]

Newberg: Michael Young retires as Rangers’ all-time leader

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. My plan in writing up the Michael Young retirement announcement was to keep it short. That’s never an easy task for me, of course, but in this case, the right thing to do seemed to […]

A Morales compass

Oakland Athletics v Seattle Mariners

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. I sprained my thumb working out on Saturday and then my back locked up trying to play tennis through the thumb thing on Monday (yeah, I’m not sure either) and now I’m sleeping horribly because of the medication prescribed for the back thing and I feel […]

The Texas Rangers; Thinking about the New Year

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. The Tyler Seguin Trade wasn’t supposed to haunt the Bruins this quickly, Oklahoma wasn’t supposed to do that to Alabama, and Charlie Strong may not have been the first choice, but Adrian Beltre was basically a fallback, too. I doubt Beltre is […]

Eric Nadel and History; The Voice of the Rangers

eric nadel

This contribution was provided by Jamey Newberg of The Newberg Report. The Newberg Report provides daily coverage of the Texas Rangers. I know exactly where I was when Eric Nadel called his first Texas Rangers game. I was by a radio. I was 10 years old, but this isn’t recollection by convenience. It’s not 333,439 claiming they were among the […]
