The Rangers kick off a three game series in New York tonight, and Jeff Wilson writes about the Rangers returning to New York for the first time since the ALCS.

T.R. Sullivan's preview notes that none of the starting pitchers the Rangers used in the ALCS will be pitching against the Yankees this weekend, with the team's young starters instead getting a chance to step up.

Gil Lebreton says a lot has changed since October, and that the Rangers did a better job of reacting to not signing Cliff Lee than the Yankees did.

And that's about it this morning.  Not much out there in the ways of links and the like.
