Silver Boot mania is sweeping the state of Texas...

Anthony Andro's game story talks about the bat and arm of C.J. Wilson, who not only threw seven innings of one run ball, but also hit a triple to get the Rangers' offense starting.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Wilson getting the ball he hit the triple with, with Wilson saying it is the highlight of his baseball career.

Evan Grant has hispost-game thoughts on the 7-3 Ranger win.

Gil Lebreton says that MLB needs to adopt instant replay, to correct egregious blown calls.

Behind the paywall, Grant talks about Ian Kinsler coming out of his slump by going the other way.

Calvin Watkins writes at ESPN Dallas about Josh Hamilton staying in one piece despite a couple of diving plays in the outfield.

The S-T's notes include an update on Elvis Andrus, who is saying he's ready to play, along with the Rangers not having decided what the plan will be with Alexi Ogando after Friday's start, and updates on Scott Feldman (who will be starting in the minors on Friday) and Tommy Hunter.

Sullivan's notes talk about Andrus, Ogando, the possibility of Hunter and Darren O'Day joining the major league bullpen in the near future, and Leonys Martin's return to Frisco.

Drew Davison has a piece on Round Rock righty Neil Ramirez and his breakout season.  Davison also writes about  the Rangers' new affiliation with the Round Rock Express.
