Tuesday a.m. Rangers stuff

13 games over, the high water mark since the end of the 2004 season, and 2.5 games back of Anaheim.

Tommy Hunter continues to impress...obviously, he isn't a 2.00 ERA pitcher, but he has a FIP of 3.98 and an xFIP of 4.76, and I'll take that any day from a late sandwich pick from 2007.

Hunter's first appearance in the majors this year, he was activated for game 1 of a doubleheader and optioned before game 2 started, so, as he told Jeff Wilson yesterday, his goal this latest time he came up was to be here long enough to unpack his bags.  He's done that and a whole lot more.

Josh Hamilton has been moved down in the order to try to help him relax and get back on track.

Richard Durrett talks about the possibility of adding Adam Dunn.  Dunn is owed $12 million next year, would probably be limited to DH here in Texas, is a lefty, and is probably going to be expensive in terms of prospects.
