Happy Independence Day, everyone...

Drew Davison writes in his game story that Roy Oswalt's start yesterday was the worst of his career.

The game story at the Rangers' website talks about the very bad days of Roy Oswalt and Ian Kinsler yesterday.

Evan Grant has his observations from last night's loss. He also has a story on Oswalt's outing behind the paywall.

Bryan Dolgin has a Rapid Reaction to yesterday's game.

Grant has a blog post about A.J. Pierzynski's complaints about not being named to the All Star Game (and swipe at Mike Napoli), with Ron Washington and Napoli responses.

Anthony Andro opines that the Rangers shouldn't trade for Zack Greinke or Cole Hamels, arguing that either pitcher would cost more than Cliff Lee did, despite not having draft pick compensation attached, and that acquiring one of them would be tantamount to declaring the Roy Oswalt signing a failure.

The S-T's notes talk about Derek Holland's return still being up in the air, Neftali Feliz and Alexi Ogando throwing, and Ron Washington saying he's not going to sit Michael Young or Mike Napoli, despite their slumps.
