Rangers Get King Felix in Opener



    Rangers Get King Felix in Opener

    Not many teams in baseball can say they've had Felix Hernandez's number, but the Texas Rangers can accurately say that.

    Hernandez is 17-21 all-time against the Rangers, and he's had a particularly rough go against the Rangers in Arlington, where he'll begin his 2016 season on April 4 on Opening Day.

    Hernandez is 7-9 all-time in the Rangers' park with a 4.13 ERA in 21 starts in Arlington. However, he was dynamite against the Rangers in 2015 when he went 5-0 with a 1.83 ERA in five starts. The Rangers will hope they get the career trend instead of last season's when they face him on April 4.

    It also, of course, means we'll be treated the must-see baseball of Hernandez against his longtime friend and former teammate Adrian Beltre, who always have hijinks up their sleeves when facing each other.
