I think we could all use a Rangers off-day right about now.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Scott Feldman's inability to throw strikes and ill-timed home run allowed knocking him out of the game early.

Anthony Andro's game story looks at Feldman's opportunity to seize a spot in the rotation, given that he's going to be getting the next few starts in this spot.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Feldman's struggles with his command yesterday.

Evan Grant has his observations from yesterday's game at the DMN blog.

Richard Durrett has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Wilson's notes talk about Matt Harrison bouncing back from a lengthy first inning to eat innings on Tuesday, Mike Napoli's slump, and Ian Kinsler's focus being on runs scored, not home runs.

Andro writes about Napoli's slump and the grueling 20 games in 20 days stretch the Rangers just went through.

Sullivan's notes talk about Harrison, Jurickson Profar, and the catchers not hitting.
