GDT: Globe Life

is the name of the Rangers park in Arlington.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

With fresh sponsor dollars getting put to use this season from Globe Life -- some company I've never heard of before their new brand recognition with Arlington -- the Rangers are currently the worst team in baseball.

While no one thought the Rangers rotation was going to impress (what? every Rangers fan thought they had the best rotation in baseball?), I don't think anyone expected them to be this bad:

ERA - 4.81 - 29th
FIP - 4.23 - 28th
WHIP - 1.48 - 30th
BAA - .282 - 30th
Quality Starts - 41 - 30th

The Rays will get to face four of these starters, starting tonight with Colby Lewis, the No. 2 starter with a 5.50 ERA, 4.09 FIP, 4.37 xFIP, 17.9% K, and 6.9% BB.

Game starts at 8:05 Eastern.

Today's Lineups

Desmond Jennings - CF Shin-Soo Choo - RF
Ben Zobrist - LF Elvis Andrus - SS
Matt Joyce - DH J.P. Arencibia - DH
Evan Longoria - 3B Adrian Beltre - 3B
James Loney - 1B Adam Rosales - 1B
Cole Figueroa - 2B Leonys Martin - CF
Yunel Escobar - SS Robinson Chirinos - C
Curt Casali - C Rougned Odor - 2B
Kevin Kiermaier - RF Dan Robertson - LF
Drew Smyly - LHP Colby Lewis - RHP

Oh look, Figueroa is batting sixth. He owns a .205/.250/.231 slash line in 44 PA this season over 21 games, due in part to a .216 BAbip. This might be his last hurrah before Wil Myers returns from the DL.
