Thursday Morning Stuff

So, Josh Reddick, you mean you are so ingrained with white trash DNA that your facial hair just grows in on its own all white trashy like that? Mandatory Credit: Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Jeff Fletcher at ESPN Dallas has Ron Washington's response to the failure of his managerial moves to make the difference in yesterday's loss, which is that they are hatching 24 new Robbie Ross clones and trading the entire current 25 man roster for Josh Reddick.

At the DMN blog, we have Yu Darvish saying that his first inning problems are not due to lack of preparation. It is probably his attempt to be sporting. They also have some quotes from Colby Lewis about leaving the game early due to tightness in his right forearm. Lewis' spokesman Steve Barber explained, "it's not the trouble he had before, it's just a little stiff until he gets loosened up," before helping Colby into the diathermy machine.

Also, Josh Reddick apologized on Twitter for his comments yesterday about Roy Oswalt, saying, I think, that it was not Oswalt that sucked, but the Oakland hitters, because they didn't light up his crappy pitches. I understand he also wanted to compliment Oswalt on maintaining remarkable prostate health and bone density despite his advanced years, but was limited to 140 characters.

Here's a recap of the game that puts the Rangers bullpen in the Compass of Shame for spoiling Colby Lewis' triumphant return that also has some pie-in-the-face antics in the Oakland clubhouse for you masochists.

T.R. Sullivan has a story about Hamilton searching for the timing that will allow him to go on another hot streak.

Jeff Wilson pulled the lever on the Crash Davis random cliche generator to get a reaction from Martin Perez on being sent back down to the minors.

In anticipation of the looming trade deadline, Anthony Andro has a trade deadline retrospective that for some reason does not include Jorge Cantu or Cristian Guzman, and when I say "for some reason" I mean "because they sucked." ... (addendum, Jorge Cantu's second half in 2010 was roughly as craptacular as Michael Young's 2012)
