Thursday a.m. Rangers stuff

I went to bed before the game was over last night, and thus missed Josh Lewin mentioning Lone Star Ball on the air towards the end of the game.

Lesson:  Never go to sleep.

Jeff Wilson's game story again has Marlon Byrd saying it will take a miracle to get back in the race, even after yesterday's win and Anaheim's loss, which got the Rangers back to 6 1/2 games behind the Angels.

The Rangers aren't sure what is behind Neftali Feliz's recent velocity drop, but don't think it is injury-related.  Also in these notes, Josh Hamilton says he hopes to be DHing this weekend, and Ron Washington lists some guys who are likely headed to winter ball.

There's also a story up on Ian Kinsler and his inconsistency in 2009, with Ron Washington saying that Kinsler's issue this year hasn't been his swing but his pitch selection.  Washington says Kinsler is a great low ball hitter, and when he makes pitchers pitch him low, rather than going after balls that are up, he's much more successful.

Brandon McCarthy is still trying to prove himself, after coming off the d.l. yet again.

Tim Cowlishaw says that the Rangers are better off with Kevin Millwood here in 2010 for $12 million than not.

And Jim Reeves has a column on the development of Ron Washington as a manager, talking about what he has learned and how he has improved since coming on board.
