The GIST: Another weekend, another sweep of the Rangers. Hey, at least Cowboys training camp starts this week. Is it September yet?

โšพ๏ธRangers: The Rangers looked like they were still on vacation in their first series after the All-Star break, as the Toronto Blue Jays outscored Texas 25โ€“2 in three games (including two shutouts). Making matters worse, the Rangers will face the Detroit Tigers โ€” who are fresh off a three-game sweep of their own โ€” today at 7:10 p.m. ET/6:10 p.m. CT. Sheesh. 

  • More bad news: although designated hitter Joey Gallo gave us some hope that he might stick around, the MLB trade deadline is looming and a mass exodus of Rangersโ€™ talent is almost inevitable. Pain.

๐ŸˆCowboys: The โ€™Boys donโ€™t kick off training camp until Wednesday, but linebacker Micah Parsons already has our MVP vote. The No. 12 2021 draft pick made good on his pre-draft promise and purchased a house for his mother in the Dallas area. Weโ€™re not crying, youโ€™re crying.
