Evan Grant on last night's game

Evan Grant has a story up on last night's game, and while he addresses the decision to yank Scott Feldman for Derek Holland (a move I think is defensible), he focuses more on the problem with the offense, and its suddenly shutting down with Josh Hamilton out of the lineup.

The problem with the team right now is that it isn't taking pitches, it isn't working the count, it isn't drawing walks, and thus it isn't getting enough baserunners (or taking advantage of the opportunities they have with the few baserunners they do get).

It is maddening, though, to see the Rangers start pitching okay, and have the bats disappear.
