The Sunday Read: Not satisfied with Seager, Semien after first 81 games with Rangers? Neither are they

ARLINGTON — The so-called “first half” of an MLB season rarely equates 50 percent of the games played.
The Rangers will play their 90th game July 17, the day the first half ends. That’s 56 percent.
Halfway is 81 games, and the Rangers reached it Friday with a 38-43 record after edging the Twins.
That mark undoubtedly disappoints the glass-half-empty folks, and, holy cow, don’t even get them started on Corey Seager and Marcus Semien.
