ARLINGTON — Corey Seager is playing golf this weekend, the first weekend after the regular season, for the first time in his career.
He had never missed the playoffs until this season, when his new team, the Texas Rangers, finished 26 games below .500 and a distant fourth in the American League West.
“It’s definitely going to be weird,” he said.
His season could be described the same way — weird.
Good article, Jeff.
I would love to see more “fire” from Seager but that might not be who he is as a person & I’m ok with that. I WOULD like to see the sloppy defense cleaned up & I do believe we’ll be better in that department next season.
All in all, I’m ready for Spring Training
So little to no pregame batting practice or field work. What’s his thinking on that? Is that unusual, or practically unheard of for a player in MLB? Has anyone asked him about this directly?
