Thursday a.m. stuff

Clearly, spring training is quieting down, since there is a combined one story out there today in the two local papers about the Rangers.

That story is about how the Rangers are hoping that more stability in the batting order will translate to better performance.  However, the Rangers had one of the best offenses in the league last year, so I'm not sure how much better they'll do with a more stable lineup, other than just having their best players in there every day.

Evan Grant says that the Rangers' success (or failure) depends on getting innings from their starters -- and in particular, getting Millwood and Padilla to give the team 200 innings apiece, preferably along with the back three guys soaking up a significant number as well.

Over at the DMN blog, Richard Durrett says that he'd like to see the Rangers and Ben Sheets try to get a deal worked out while he's rehabbing.
