The Texas Rangers need starting pitching, and they’re eyeing the Tampa Bay Rays as a possible trade partner.
Matt Moore is a name high on Texas’s list, but Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly are also reportedly on Texas’s radar.

The Rays have a whole lot of young, controllable starting pitching. Odorizzi is just 26 and under team control through 2019. Smyly turned 27 in June and is controllable through 2018. Moore is 27 as well and signed to a team-friendly contract through 2019. Any deal for any of the pitchers would be an investment for the long term as well, though all three pitchers have had their share of struggles in 2016.
Texas is aggressively pursuing pitching help, and they were reportedly in on another starter who has since been moved to another team. They’ll almost certainly add an arm before the August 1 trade deadline.
Good Saturday morning!!!!

Myles’ cousin, Donald Holley, said he suffered a heart attack Wednesday in Miami.
Myles, a third-round pick from Florida, played six seasons with the Cowboys, winning three Super Bowl titles. Myles, a backup linebacker, started 11 games during the 1995 season. He suffered a torn ACL in the Cowboys’ Super Bowl XXX
victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
His NFL career ended the next season.
At Florida, Myles was a team captain and first-team All-SEC pick as a senior in 1990.

Our good friend Rick Chandler over at Off the Bench, just knocked one out of the park with this entry. This German in the video is so cheesy, he just cracked me up. Let me just repost Rick’s entry:
A recent study rated Germans as the least humorous nationality, and you can’t really disprove those findings with Flula Borg, the Bavarian-born DJ/TV personality/Dirk Nowitzki fan who enjoys playing on YouTube. Here’s Flula dissing the Miami Heat in his unique Flula way, which includes the declaration: “Miami Heat stay home! Netflix.” Also: “Chris Bosh: here inside, poo-poo time!”
Dirk Nowitzki: He plays good, like an iPod.
