Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Hey, everyone. Its the weekend. And there' just 15 days until the Rangers' Opening Day.

MLB.com has a writeup of yesterday's 5-2 loss to San Francisco, and the highlights appear to be Jim Adduci and Derek Lowe, so that's exciting. Also, Joe Ortiz has now thrown seven shutout innings this spring.

Drew Davison's game story talks about the Giants pitchers shutting down the Ranger hitters.

Ron Matejko has his Rapid Reaction to the game at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Davison says that Derek Lowe made a good impression in his spring debut yesterday.

Anthony Andro ranks the A.L. West second basemen, with Ian Kinsler being #1 on his list, and whoever ends up starting in Oakland at second being last on the list.

Remember Chris McGuiness? The first baseman who was selected from the Rangers by Cleveland in the Rule 5 Draft? Well, Indians manager Terry Francona has some nice things to say about him, but it sounds like he's not going to make the Indians' 25 man roster, and they instead are hoping to work out a trade with the Rangers that would allow them to keep McGuiness.

The S-T has a Q&A with Michael Kirkman about raising twins.

Davison's notes talk about Lance Berkman being unfazed about his spring stats, Nick Tepesch continuing his fight to be the Rangers' fifth starter, and Coty Woods fighting for a spot in the Ranger bullpen.

T.R. Sullivan's notes talk about Lowe, Woods, Tepesch, and the David Murphy contract extension talks not having happened yet.
