Monday Morning Rangers Update

Yoshi! Just because!

All Texas Rangers are in Surprise and full workouts are taking place. Soon we'll be sick of Spring Training.

The 2011 season has officially been put to rest now that Ron Washington has given his Spring Training speech. As Anthony Andro writes, Washington told his troops that "the championship runs through Texas."

Richard Durrett writes that Joe Nathan also spoke to the whole team at the urging of Washington.

I-Don't-Owe-The-Rangersgate rolls on with T.R. Sullivan noting that Josh Hamilton spoke to clarify his words from the other day. Hamilton says the Rangers will get first crack at signing him should he reach free agency.

Evan Grant writes about Hamilton's clarification and is of the opinion that he didn't need to give clarification anyway.

Andro notes that Mike Napoli took part in first day drills and was feeling good.

Kelvin De La Cruz tops Evan Grant's intriguing players of spring list.

Andro has some notes about Koji Uehara, Elvis Andrus taking it easy after his wart removal (a thrilling storyline!), and other things.

Sullivan's notebook is filled with items such as Elvis being treated like a veteran this spring, Joe Beimel being the first man down with a stiff elbow, a few of Nelson Cruz's favorite things, and a bunch more spring notes.

Durrett's "Surprise Six" offers six surprising things, surely.

Finally, Drew Davison has some video of Ron Washington tossing some BP. Ron Washington tossing BP is always adorable.
