Tuesday Morning Rangers Update

Beyond Shoulder Touch

That game last night was pretty forgettable. So, here's a bunch of articles about it.

T.R. Sullivan's game story recaps the latest poor effort from Yu Darvish who couldn't out-duel the extraordinarily ordinary Aaron Cook.

Richard Durrett offers up the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers 9-2 loss against the Boston Red Sox. Among the notes is one on the number of doubles Darvish allowed yesterday. The "encouraging" part is Roy Halladay, David Wells, and Curt Schilling (twice) all also allowed more than seven doubles in a start in the last 10 years. Cy Yu Award they'll some day call it.

Behind the DMN Paywall, Evan Grant writes about Darvish's disappointing outing where apparently Ron Washington saw progress.

Also behind the DMN Paywall, Tim Cowlishaw waits for the Rangers to lose a couple for another round of "The Rangers have flaws and don't win every game."

On the Roy Oswalt front: Thad Levine is up in Boston and talked with Billy Humphrey and Richard Durrett about the situation. Sounds like Oswalt has made it known he'd prefer to be traded somewhere where he could start but the Rangers aren't in a hurry to make that happen.

Kevin Sherrington writes that Oswalt should essentially pitch where the Rangers tell him to or go away. Of course, it's a stickier situation than that. Money is involved. Egos are involved. What's best for the team has to be considered. Maybe the Rangers can get Oswalt in a game at shortstop.

The DMN has a transcript of Nolan Ryan's appearance on Galloway & Company where he discussed the Oswalt nonsense and his thoughts on Derek Holland's struggles.

Sullivan's Notebook covers Mike Olt requesting extra time with Ron Washington for infield practice. Washington also said Olt is "too young" to DH which is why Olt rode the pine yesterday. There are other items to check out as well.

Drew Davison's notes tackle the latest on Oswalt and a note stating Elvis Andrus should be back at shortstop tonight. Waiting to exhale.

Lastly, the Croatia vs. Spain Women's Handball quarterfinal started 30 minutes ago.
