Monday a.m. things

Yeah, I'm still irritated by yesterday's game.

Evan Grant laments the Rangers letting a winnable game slip away, and goes down the list of self-inflicted damage the team did to itself in blowing a 5-1 lead.

In Jeff Wilson's game story, Brandon McCarthy accepts blame for the loss, saying that he should have been able to shut down the Orioles in the 5th, rather than allowing three runs to score to let them back in the game.

One of the bright spots from yesterday's game was David Murphy, who broke out of a season-long 0'fer with a home run. 

Wilson also has some notes up, including some discussion of Ranger positional players who are going to get a day off in the near future, and Josh Hamilton's status (he's apparently good to go for today).

T.R. Sullivan says that Matt Harrison is looking to get back on track today, after a poor start to the season.

And Richard Durrett shares some of his Rangers thoughts after this weekend's games.
