Change the Texas Rangers team name to the Arlington Rangers

Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 hurricane. Relentless rains that followed drowned the city of Houston. Billions of dollars of damages and flood waters nearing 20 feet shut down the fourth largest city in America. As it is the middle of the baseball season, the Houston Astros needed a place to play, as the flood waters receded. Astros president Reid Ryan reached out to Rangers brass in an effort to swap home series with the Rangers. Ryan said, "Hey, let's switch series. You guys have our home series, and we'll take your home series. They rejected that and didn't want to do that. The Rangers wanted us to play the next three days at their place, but they did not want to trade series with us. They wanted all six of our games at their park." This refusal forced the Astros to schedule the Rangers series in Tampa Bay, Florida. Such an act of deplorable nature deems the Rangers unfit to wear the great state of Texas across their chest.
