Monday Morning Rangers Update

Hi guys, I'm Robbie Ross

The Texas Rangers are finished with the 2012 Cactus League season. I am glad.

Richard Durrett reacts to the Rangers final spring game and focuses on Colby Lewis getting in his last outing before his Opening Day start.

Jeff Wilson writes about the Rangers 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. The Rangers finished Cactus League play 12-17-1.

Owen Perkins of recaps the Rangers final spring game. Derek Holland will face the Round Rock Express tonight in his final warm-up before the season.

Wilson recaps Spring Training for the Texas Rangers in Surprise where perhaps the biggest story was Robbie Ross making the team. Your team has probably had a pretty good spring when the biggest story is a rookie making the team as the seventh man in the bullpen.

T.R. Sullivan writes about the Rangers waving goodbye to the desert feeling confident as the season approaches.

Drew Davison spoke with Josh Hamilton about the best and worst things about big league spring training.

Sullivan writes about David Murphy getting regular playing time with the Rangers thinking of starting Josh Hamilton in center fielder this season.

Evan Grant writes about Robbie Ross' reaction to hearing the news that he would make the opening day roster. I imagine Jon Daniels could pull a pretty wicked April Fool's joke today if he wanted to.

With Ross' ascension, Joey Matches takes a closer look at what could be the finalized bullpen to begin the season.

T.R. Sullivan's Notebook features items on Robbie Ross making the club, Neal Cotts' injury which officially paved the way for Ross, the hotness (Mitch Moreland) and coldness (Nelson Cruz) of players as spring ends, an update on Ian Kinsler's contract extension talks, and many other things.

Gerry Fraley notes that, thanks to the Mariners reshuffling their rotation after their trip to Japan, the Rangers will miss Felix Hernandez when the teams meet for the season's second series.

Finally, Grant has a photo slideshow for his predictions of Rangers record for each month of the season and his final prediction for total record and finish in the A.L. West. (Hint: The Rangers win.)
