Not much out there in Rangersland today...ugly sixth inning meltdown led to a loss yesterday, there's an offday today, and the Rangers are just playing out the string...
Tom Hicks' "clarifications" are still the main news out there, as Kat O'Brien reports on Hicks' efforts to dig himself out of the hole he got himself in.
Frankie Francisco is apparently scheduled to re-join the Rangers this weekend, after appearing for Spokane last night. If he checks out okay, he'll apparently re-join the Ranger bullpen for the last few weeks of the season.
Meanwhile, in non-Ranger news, lefty reliever Eddie Guardado is going to be undergoing Tommy John surgery, meaning he's out until at least 2008.
