The Rangers must be thrilled

The Rangers are supposedly already a bit put out with the Venezuelan WBC people, who assured Ranger management that Max Ramirez would be starting in the first round games, and then went with Ramon Hernandez behind the plate throughout round 1.

And now, for today's game against the U.S., Venezuela sat Hernandez...and started Henry Blanco at catcher instead.  Although Ramirez is now in the game as a late-inning replacement for Miguel Cabrera.

Max has gotten almost no playing time during the WBC, a situation that, had the Rangers known it would be the case, I imagine would have resulted in Max staying in Surprise for spring training, instead.
