Bye bye, Bottsy

I had been wondering, why did the Rangers bother calling up Jason Botts if he's only going to DH against lefties, and there are no lefties facing the Rangers for the next 10 days?

Well, the Rangers have apparently solved that problem by sending him down to make room for C.J. Wilson, who I guess will be sliding into the role of cannon fodder in the bullpen.

After the trashing of the pen the last couple of days, the Rangers did desperately need a long man out there, and Wilson fills the role as well as anyone, I guess.
