Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

If only Yu could pitch every day - Rick Yeatts

The number one source for all your Frisco Roughrider fan club news

Good morning.

Richard Durrett reacted rapidly to the Rangers' 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians on a day where the baseball game seemed like an afterthought after the latest wave of injuries.

Grace Raynor recaps the Rangers' second consecutive loss to the Indians amid the Rangers' seemingly 100th consecutive day with someone hitting the DL.

Drew Davison's game story includes a plea from Joe Saunders for whomever is responsible (Nolan) to take the pins out of the voodoo doll.

Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers probably weren't playing Ice Cube's 'Today Was A Good Day' in the clubhouse after the game yesterday.

Gerry Fraley writes that Ron Washington told Shin-Soo Choo to be Shin-Soo Choo and not worry about where he is in the lineup. I'll assume Choo misunderstood and thought Wash said to be more like him and that's why he bunted in the 8th inning yesterday.

Durrett writes that since people have already paid for tickets to the games, the Rangers have to keep playing out the schedule even though their current backup first baseman is probably Nick Martinez.

With that in mind, Fraley looks at the options at first base and they include bringing J.P. Arencibia back up and/or calling up someone named Brad Snyder.

The options don't include The Eater of Worlds Joey Gallo. As Kate Morrison writes, Gallo is on his way to Frisco -- along with Chi Chi Gonzalez -- and not Arlington. And so, we're primarily Roughrider fans now.

Raynor handles the MLB.com Notebook and covers Rougned Odor's injury, Mitch Moreland's injury, your injury, my injury, and everyone's injuries.

Davison has notes on Moreland's future ankle reconstruction surgery, the promotion of Gallo and Gonzalez to Double-A, and Martinez feeling comfortable in the rotation.

Lastly, MLB.com's Caitlin Swieca previews tonight's series-concluding contest with Martinez on the mound for the Rangers against T.J. House and the Cleveland Indians.
