Four game losing streak, but at least we have a favorable pitching matchup today.
Ron Washington claims that Wes Littleton can win a more permanent role in the bullpen by pitching well this week. He does inspire more confidence in me than about half of the opening day pen, so here's hoping that he can establish himself.
John Patterson is working his way back, and Mark Connor has an optimistic tone about the whole thing. We're all a little jaded right at the moment by recent results from a former NL pitcher working his way back from injury and an 80 mph fastball. But given where the team is this season, these efforts are probably worth a shot.
And the Rangers will honor Jackie Robinson today with a uniform tribute.
