It is a good day today. The Rangers won last night. They are up 8.5 games on Oakland, and 10 games on Anaheim. I'm going up to see tonight's game, along with Friday's and Saturday's. And Tom Hicks still is not the owner of the Rangers.
Jeff Wilson writes in his game story that Colby Lewis finally got some support from his teammates yesterday, even though he still wasn't able to pick up win #10.
T.R. Sullivan's game story sings the praises of Andres Blanco, who had a big game with family in the stands.
Gil Lebreton says that Blanco has done the best job at filling the void at second base when Ian Kinsler has been out.
One player who won't be filling in for Kinsler anymore is Joaquin Arias...he was designated for assignment yesterday to make room for Alex Cora.
Richard Durrett talks about Darren Oliver getting back on track yesterday, after having gone through a rough stretch on the mound of late.
The S-T's notes talk about Rich Harden knowing he needs to build on Monday's success, along with injury updates on Ian Kinsler, Nelson Cruz, and Frank Francisco.
Sullivan's notes also touch on injury issues, yesterday's roster move, and the one-hitter.
William Wilkerson talked to Kinsler about his return from injury.
And Kevin Sherrington talks about how the Rangers have kept their heads up throughout their recent struggles.
