Saturday morning Rangers stuff

Not the best performances of the season from C.J. Wilson and Neftali Feliz, but they were good enough, and the bats stayed hot, as the Rangers spanked Oakland, 8-5.

Anthony Andro's game story talks about the Ranger offense keying the Rangers' fifth straight victory.

T.R. Sullivan's game story points out that the 105 degree game time temperature is the highest in TBIA history.

The S-T's notes talk about the Rangers' latest roster move, with Andres Blanco going to the d.l. with a "stress reaction" in his lower back, Omar Quintanilla having his contract purchased, and Scott Feldman moving to the 60 day d.l.  The Feldman move is strictly procedural...as the S-T notes in discussing Derek Holland's start, Feldman still is likely to be activated from the disabled list next week, and could replace Holland in the rotation, despite Holland's complete game shutout in his last outing.

Sullivan's notes talk about the Blanco/Quintanilla transaction and the unusual nature of Holland's last two starts.

Alex Rodriguez is bowing out of the All Star Game, which means that Adrian Beltre will be the starter at third base.

Jeff Wilson writes about the Rangers playing the day after Shannon Stone fell to his death.  Tim Madigan of the S-T has a story about Stone, with colleagues talking about what a great father he was.  Evan Grant writes that the Rangers will keep throwing foul balls to fans.
