Welcome to talking in Texas Rangers podcast. I'm...

...your host, learning, at least today, ready into the latest news from around Globe Life Field. But first we'd like to thank our sponsor and game time for sponsoring this episode. Check them out today. You can use the linking the description to support the show and buy your next Texas Rangers tickets. And, of course, starting off, we have a fifteen report. I'm sure all TEXAS RANGERS FANS ARE TIRED OF WATCHING THE RANGERS LOSE by one. Now, I mean this has probably gotta be one stat fans didn't see coming this year. As to the end of the Rangers series versus the Mariners, the Rangers lost twenty three games by one run. If you at least win three or four of those games, the Rangers would more than likely be second in the division right now, or at least close to it. There's plenty of blame to go around, from the relief pitching Chris Woodward not managing the...

...team correctly. But with that we dive intoday. Today we dive into WHO's hot. First up, Nathaniel Lowe. I'd like to thank Mr Lowe family is trying to put in the effort and provide some offense at the plate. In the last seven games, low has nine hits, two home runs four rbis. One of those home runs brought the Rangers within one run of beating the marriers. Next, Josh Smith. Now, I'm sure you're wondering why Josh Smith is on here when we only had two R BIS with that bat. I can see why the Rangers called him up from triple a earlier this season. His effort to make plays from third base, where all playing left field, is what probably caught Woodward's attention. Next up, Martin Perez. I wish we had five of him some weeks this season. Martin Perez showed why he made the All Star game this past week and two games. His stats for the past were seven hits tour and runs in fifteen ks. I...

...hope Chriss young starts working on this extension for next season. We need him back in the Rangers uniform as a starter next season. And now Ford, you got to address WHO's not hot, starting out with Martin. I don't know where his head was at when he got inserted against the Oakland a's game. He gave up back to back home runs that put the a's in a position in the bottle of the night, but win the game. I knew it was just one game, but when you help almost blow a ten run lead, you will be in WHO's not hot list. The next up Owen White. Ohen White was moved to the seventy injured list after he started having four hour fatigue. Now Waite his pitch double what he did last season. So it was injury could be strictly because his arm wasn't ready for double blow this quickly. Hopefully he can come back and finish the season strong, and right now the ranger hornor finishing up eight series against the baltimoreals tonight. The...

...first domino trade deadline for strangers has fallen, and it's not the one any of US excited the Rangers of shipped Reliever Matt Bush Up North in Milwaukee in exchange for infielder Mark Mathighs and prized brewers pitching prospect Antoine Kelly. J Bush is a remarkable story on overcome much personal anniversity become an effective reliever for the Rangers, who posted at strikeouts thirty six innings for Texas in two non rostering lady this rating this year. He now heads the brewer crew as a weapon for their bullpen. On the Rangers end of things, scored big in this trade. Wearing another talented pitching prospect obtained picture Antoine Kelly Jr. Kelly was second round selection by the Brewers, ranked at number sixteen in Milwaukee's arm system...

...according to MLB pipeline. Kelly I'm equipped with a plus basketball bove average slider in an emerging changer, so he has reliever risk. He also has immense upside as a starter, so he's volatile but ultimately talented. A's for Matthias, the infielder. He's been really high level depth but could find himself carrying on a role in the rangers and rosters. The Real Prize at this deal for Christ young and John Daniels, though it's clearly Kelly. It's hard not to be this trade as anything but a win for the Texas Rangers, who des by lacking a big league pitching options. I don't really need Bush for the long haul. It's better to continue stock playing arms in the minor leagues, but the organization has assembled an impressive collection of talents that could be used in a trade to acquire big league players later. Kelly isn't on the forty man, so the question whether to protect him this winter will emerge for the Rangers, but there's no reason why they wouldn't. For someone with attention, the Texas Rangers struck gold on there. Only moved during the trade deadline and...

I'll have to see what comes of it. What is doing the comments section below. What did you think of the Texas Rangers Organizations? Trade deadline moves? Well leas we move on to our next topic. After pulling off the rising trade on Monday evening. That's sent relief pitching or Matt Bush to the Brewers for highly talented prospect Antoine Kelly and triple a utility mark man markt Mathias. The Texas Rangers stood pat on Tuesday. Action at the trade deadline can be exciting for an organizization and the fan base. No action can also indicate that the club likes where they are currently, as well as the path they are on. Obviously, with a record that is well below five, actually...

...no chance at the playoffs this year. We were not going to be buyers for this season. If there wouldn't been a deal or two that made sense for twenty three and beyond, there's no doubt that young and Daniels would pull the trigger. The one player that most people felt Mike would be moved was Matt Moore. He has pitched great this year and has performed well above his career numbers. Over forty eight point two innings this season, the left painted reliever has posted fifty two K's, has a one sixty six e R A to Sev. He's due to hit free agency at the end of the season and it was assumed that more would be treated to garner a return of additional prospects to end of the Rangers strong form system. That didn't happen. Not that it will be a guarantee, but Texas will be looking to sign more to an extension in the off season. It helps solidify the bullpen for next year's playoff. Bush should be remembered that, more was a non roster and lady to training. Captain didn't even make the opening day roster. He was called up shortly after the season started and if at all for the Rangers all...

...season. Hopefully it will be part of a fund season in twenty three. The only other player that, on papers, should have been traded was Martin Perez. Perez also having a career year starts this prens is pitched hundred intings, posting a hundred and seven K's, allowing only thirty five walks, two two R A and two point eight war the first time I'll start would have fetched a good amount of talent, but if I was with more the rangers want him to be part of the team next season. Can Be on. Not only that, but Perez wants to be in Arlington's and has made it clear of his wishes to stay in the organization. The fact that help the Texas Rangers signed Perez in the off season and potentially do so when it's like discount. Even though it was quiet on the outside, Rangers for an office was working hard over the last few days exploring every possible SONARIO. At the end of the day, they felt like staying the course with the proper decision. They are committed to adding starting pitching in the offseason and since Chris Young...

...showed up in Arlington, things are headed in a great direction. The off season should definitely be an exciting one. Let us know in your thoughts in the comment section. Left Perez or hand or meant more been traded? Of course, there is one question. Could the Texas Rangers actually have buyers remorse? It doesn't seem possible, given that the team's recent Tra tractory would have made them sellers more than buyers in two but after missing out on trading for a controllable starter at the deadline this year and with an injury to rotation stalwart John Gray, as well as uncertainty behind ace Martin Perez, all eyes will be on the Front Office to address their pitching staffs sooner rather than later, since they didn't strike while Aaron was hot. On August, twod rangers a GM, Chris Young, made it a point to say that upgrading the pitching would be the team's clear top priority in the coming winter. This they're spending...

...five plus million to bring in high end talent. Last winter there were clearly options at the trade deadline if the Rangers wanted to acquire his controllable starter. Louis Castillo, Tyler Mall Frankie Montes were among the prime candidates. There mark. The market ended up being expensive for those assets, though, as you would expect in Texas, selected retained the prospect depth. But looking ahead to the off season, the starter market looks bleak. The Best Picture on the market, Jacob degrom, is a massive injury risk, but it is nonetheless elite, despite already being in his mid mid thirties. Behind him the injured Chris sent the aging David Price, Dr Legend Clayton Kershaw, who almost became a ranger in two you got Charlie Morton? No, it's Syndergard, Carlos, Robin, Nathanyvoldi, an old friend, Kyle Gibson. Well, there may be a lot of names. None besides the ground at this stage of...

...the game, or none of them besides the gram, offered true age potential at this stage of the game. There's a lot of injury prone names there and no other name besides the ground screams must have. This is the position Chris Young and John Daniels have put themselves in. Yes, there are more options and free agency, but wouldn't you were in there have Castillo, montees or mall over most of the names above all, three offer more upside too. In general, young and Daniels have no choice. They've made it clear that pitching is a priority and it better be, with contention next year also on their minds, because the Rangers pitching staff is currently constructed. It's just plain bad. Having a fantastic group of picture prospects in the way certainly helps, but they can all be saviors. The Front office has got to poleep even more money and get the best upgrades they possibly can, because they opted to pass on the talent and veil well it this year's deadline and finally,...

...in a surprise turn, like we discussed a little bit before, Perez and more never got traded as such. They remain on the Texas Rangers Roster. The only move the Rangers made was trading Matt Bush. I thought there was a good chance Perez would be dealt, though, as a rental starting pitcher who has had a very good first half of the season but who most teams would probably not feel comfortable with using more than once a seven game playoff series, given his lack of a track record of performing at this level, I thought the potential returned and a trade would not be that great. The Rangers apparently believed that whatever was offered for per us was less valuable than having him...

...in Texas the final two months of the season to provide innings and whatever progress it provides in an effort to extend Perezbi on this year more. Meanwhile, I expected to be dealt because, well, everyone needs releaders and more as a free agent after this season. More has put up at one sixty six E R a forty eight relief innings to seventy F I p. One of these had control issues crop up at times. One would think you would still be of interest to playoff containers again. Whatever was offered was apparently not enough, but I am surprised that there wasn't even a third year prospect offered that would entice the rangers to pull the trigger on a deal.
