As usual, Mitch Moreland’s ascent to a high water mark of .296 has been followed by a dip below .260 following last night’s game.
I’m sure his slugging percentage has plunged considerably as well during his latest funk that’s seen him go 4 for 33 since returning from the

they also wouldn’t have to pitch AGAINST him 12 to 18 times a year including the playoffs .
But Jon Daniels, in his infinite brilliance, decided that the Rangers couldn’t afford Yu Darvish’s contract AND Prince’s–even though they’d just landed the second biggest television contract in baseball history….
