Friday morning Rangers stuff

Clint Hurdle has been hired as the Rangers hitting coach, and Jeff Wilson writes that Hurdle wants to focus on the hitters' approach, rather than on their mechanics.

Gil LeBreton says the Rangers have hired Hurdle to be an offensive coordinator as much as anything else, wanting players to be more situationally aware and have a more "team-oriented" approach.

Five Rangers filed for free agency yesterday -- Marlon Byrd, Hank Blalock, Pudge Rodriguez, Eddie Guardado, and Joaquin Benoit.  Byrd, Pudge and Benoit could all be back, although Benoit would likely be on a minor league deal.

And T.R. Sullivan has a tribute to the retiring Jim Reeves.
