Texas Rangers: How Willie Calhoun’s renewed mindset after starting season in minors has given Rangers a much-needed offensive injection | SportsDay

“It’s hard to put into words how proud I am of him,” manager Chris Woodward said. “It’s pretty special to see a kid who obviously wasn’t happy, but basically accepted what was going on and said ‘I’m going to be better because of the circumstances I’ve been put in.’ It didn’t affect him. He did everything he needed to do. It’s just a testament that he embraced our conversations. Hopefully, he knows that regardless of what happens moving forward, he’s done everything to belong here. I can’t make any promises to any player, but he’s made an impact in every game we’ve played.”

When Calhoun played in the Texas League he reminded me of Joe Morgan, without the walks, and without the glove. Actually, he was pretty terrible at 2B. He's really a DH that just not built like your traditional type DH.
