Its coming.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on Matt Harrison's last spring start.

Nelson Cruz and Mike Adams both left yesterday's game with injuries, but both seem to feel they'll be ready for Opening Day.

Drew Davison says the Rangers' bullpen, on paper, looks stronger than last year's pen, with Mark Lowe the only member of the 2011 Opening Day bullpen who is expected to be in the 2012 Opening Day bullpen.

Evan Grant ranks the 2012 Opening Day roster in order of importance. My thoughts are that Derek Holland and Neftali Feliz are too high, and Yu Darvish and Mitch Moreland are too low.

Grant also looks at the seven key questions from spring training, and the answers that were generated.

The S-T's notes talk about the possibility of contract extensions before Opening Day, the storm that hit yesterday, and the last guys on the bench.

Sullivan's notes talk about a possible Ian Kinsler contract extension, Brandon Snyder and Craig Gentry being happy to make the team, and Yoshinori Tateyama likely heading to the d.l.
