Spring training is finally here, so we are getting notes and reports from Surprise...

Anthony Andro writes that Josh Hamilton doesn't care where he plays...right, center, DH occasionally, he's fine with it.

C.J. Wilson says he's 100% healthy, and Ron Washington says Justin Smoak is a gym rat.

Jim Reeves has a column up on the Andruw Jones signing, and thinks that if he does stick, Nelson Cruz shouldn't be the guy squeezed out.

Jeff Wilson runs down the key questions for the Rangers this spring.

T.R. Sullivan says there is going to be a lot of competition this spring.  I don't really see it...the catching situation is in flux, of course, and Andruw Jones could change some things, but other than that, the only real competition appears to be for a couple of bullpen spots.

Sullivan also says good health is key for the Rangers pitching staff.

Jean-Jacques Taylor runs down the top 10 leaders in the D/FW sports scene, with three Rangers making the cut.
