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.

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.

The Grand Prairie AirHogs are in El Paso to begin a short roadtrip:
A three game set today, Saturday, and Sunday, then a three game series in Fort Worth starting Monday.
Let’s hear what Coach Ricky thinks about the upcoming series:
If you want to watch the game you can! Just log in to here!
This story is going viral, if you will pardon the pun.
Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were caught pretending to be sick and apparently mocking Dirk Nowitzki on camera by channel 11 in Dallas. Nowitzki had a fever above 100 degrees during Game 4, but still managed to lead the Mavericks to a series-tying victory.
Here is the video:
Karma, if you believe in such a thing, came back to get Wade? He injured his hip
early in Game 5 and tried to play through it.
Wow. Pretty bold move guys. At least the Mavs won Game 5 and now are 1 win away from winning this series. I would imagine the Mavs will have the last laugh. Oh, and did I mention karma?
