Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Last night in a single snapshot - David Banks

The latest news and notes on Darwin Barney's Ron Washington inflated OBP

Two times. Darwin Barney was intentionally walked twice. That's not one time, but twice.

I'll hopefully get over this one of these days.

Sahadev Sharma of ESPN Dallas handles the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' 9-2 drubbing at the hands of old friend Scott Feldman and those Chicago Cubs.

MLB.com's Joey Nowak writes a recap to a game that you probably don't want recapped for you. I mean, Barney was intentionally walked as many times as the Rangers had hits off of Feldman, for example.

What did Ian Kinsler think of last night's game? Well, here's a quote from Jeff Wilson's game story:

"I don't want to take anything away from [Feldman], but I don't feel like we showed up to play. I don't know what the right word is for a game like this, but you don't want to play too many of them."

It's (not really) nice to know that I'm not the only one who thinks the Rangers weren't entirely invested in last night's baseball game. The word(s) for a game like that is toothpaste hot dog.

Behind the DMN paywall, Gerry Fraley writes that with Martin Perez and Colby Lewis on rehab assignment, Nick Tepesch's days in the rotation might be numbered. Tepesch hasn't been very good for a couple of turns, but if he can get the Rangers to Colby Lewis, and then provide the comfort of depth in Round Rock, he'll have done the job that he surprised everybody by winning in Spring Training.

Speaking of Perez, Nowak has an update on Perez's rehab start in Frisco last night in the MLB.com Notebook. In addition, Nowak covers Ron Washington's praise of Kinsler's season at the plate, and an update on various maladies.

Wilson has notes on what Washington feels is Yu Darvish's pitch limit, Justin Grimm's ability to hit (because National League), and various other items.

Jason Mastrodonato previews the opener of a two-game series in Milwaukee where Grimm will face Wily Peralta under the dark cloud of archaic rules with presumably no cars on the field.

And that's it. It seems everyone wanted to write about last night's game as much as the Rangers wanted to play it.
