Saturday a.m. Rangers things

At least the Angels lost...

Evan Grant says that Vicente Padilla got squeezed by the home plate umpire last night, and in particular, had strike three to Jason Kubel called a ball before leaving a pitch up in the zone that Kubel hammered for the three-run homer than won the game for the Twins.

Anthony Andro says that Josh Hamilton was the only offense last night. 

Matt Harrison is going to head out on a rehab assignment next week, assuming his bullpen session tomorrow goes well.  Meanwhile, the Rangers are going to drop a reliever after this series with Minnesota, potentially in favor of Esteban German, whose addition would require a 40 man roster move.

Jennifer Floyd Engel says the Rangers need Hamilton and Ian Kinsler to hit if they want to stay in the race.

And the Rangers have the biggest percentage increase in their TV ratings of any of the 30 major league clubs this year.  Amazing what winning some games will do...
