Saturday a.m. things

Well, that sucked.

Evan Grant says Luis Mendoza just didn't have command of his sinker last night.  That happens, and Mendoza caught a bit of a bad break with the Ortiz grand slam -- a ball that is a flyout to the left fielder in 29 other stadiums -- but Mendoza is going to have to make those outings few and far between if he's going to stay in the rotation.  Mendoza hasn't been throwing that two-seam sinking fastball for a real long time, which may have something to do with it.

Omar Beltre and Alexi Ogando are in Japan right now, showing their stuff to Japanese teams that may want to purchase their contracts from the Rangers.

And according to the S-T, Eddie Guardado is getting activated this weekend.
