Friday Morning Stuff

Richard Durrett sings the praises of the Rangers' front office, saying they did their homework on Beras and that in a year, when he starts playing, we'll be able to see if he was worth it. Mr. Santos and Juan Dominguez are reportedly going to be working him out during his suspension.

Durrett also says that Neftali Feliz's first rehab outing will be two innings, and that he's being stretched back out to start, though Gerry Fraley has a quote from Jon Daniels saying his role when he returns is yet to be determined (possibilities include "doing a helluva job in Philly," and "taking starts from Scooter Feldman," I guess, though the latter role is currently occupied).

Behind the paywall, Fraley says the "west coast swing needs to be a hit," and for that kind of analysis whatever DMN is charging is not nearly enough.

Christian Corona says Ogando feels 100% after his first rehab start, and that Ogando has suggestions for other ways to endanger pitchers besides making them bat, like sword-swallowing after double plays or only pitching while engulfed in flames. Actually, those are my suggestions that I scribbled yesterday in my creepy notebook, but I am confident that Ogando would endorse them.

Various writers at the Star-Telegram have tips on eating at The Ballpark. The tip I submitted is to save money by filling up on condiments, and though it was cut for space considerations I still expect my freelance fee before my next appointment at the methadone clinic.
