Friday a.m. Rangers stuff

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Friday morning Rangers news and links

Good morning.  The Rangers are tied with the Tigers for the best record in the A.L. right now.  Who saw that coming?

Don't get too excited, though...Randy Galloway has a column about how the Rangers aren't really that good, and are just beating up on the Astros and Angels to pad their record.

Gerry Fraley has a column talking about the Rangers' improvement in situational hitting, and adoption of what Dave Magadan has been preaching this season.

Drew Davison has a story in the S-T about the Rangers' inability to find a long-term solution at catcher in recent years, and has quotes from Jim Sundberg about what the Rangers like about current catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

Master Tesfatsion has a story about Martin Perez using deep breathing exercises to avoid getting too amped up and overthrowing in big situations.

And that appears to be all there is this morning.  Have a good Friday, everyone.
