Thursday a.m. things

You know, every winter, I get all fired up about spring training starting...

And then, all fired up about exhibition games starting up...

Because I'm ready for some baseball...

And that buzz lasts for a little while...and then, I end up hitting a point where I think, "I'm sick of spring training and exhibition games.  I want the season to start."

Well, the season is close to starting.  And it is about time...I'm ready...

Luis Mendoza's blister is sending him to the d.l., although this appears to be largely procedural, and he'll still apparently make his start on April 12, as planned.

Richard Durrett has some quotes from Saltalamacchia and Laird in a piece about Salty getting sent down.  Both are saying the right things, at this point...

Kevin Sherrington says Edinson Volquez's spring training performance is bad news for Rangers fans.  Personally, I don't get that.  If I had the chance to wave my hands and reverse that deal right now, there's no way I would.  I hope Volquez succeeds in Cincy, and Hamilton does even better for Texas.

Anthony Andro has a Rangers spring recap, with some love for, among others, Kaz Fukumori and David Murphy.

Jim Reeves says the Rangers should name Michael Young the team captain.  Meh.
