So it's official. The Round Rock Express are the Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, rendering 89 posts (make that 90, after this one) obsolete and useless.
"We're happy to bring the Express and the Round Rock community into the Rangers family. Things are headed in the right direction in Arlington, and the relationship with our minor league affiliates is a big part of that. Having our two highest affiliates in Texas is a positive."
Rangers Assistant GM Thad Levine:
"The Rangers are excited about the new relationship with Round Rock, the Ryan family, and all the great people with the Express. Our scouting and player development staffs have done an outstanding job at providing young talent to the Rangers organization. We look forward to having those players continue their journey to the big leagues at The Dell Diamond."
