Friday a.m. Rangers things

Yesterday's spring game against the Brewers may have had a significant impact on who makes the starting rotation...

Matt Harrison was very impressive yesterday, striking out 5 batters in a row at one point while going four innings and allowing two runs, helping his cause.

Meanwhile, Tommy Hunter, who appeared to have the fourth starter spot well in hand, was scratched from his start yesterday because of a strained ribcage muscle.  Depending on how long he's sidelined, he could end up starting the season on the d.l. or in the minors, meaning two of the candidates for the fifth starter job could be in the rotation.

Evan Grant thinks the Hunter injury could open the door for C.J. Wilson to make the rotation.  So does Richard Durrett.

Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers are trying to get both Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Taylor Teagarden into game shape, while trying to make a decision as to which will be the starter this season.

The S-T has some notes up from yesterday, including a rundown of the B game.  T.R. Sullivan also has some notes from yesterday.

Buster Olney has some comments on the Ron Washington situation.

The type of people who send angry emails to Randy Galloway sent angry emails to Randy Galloway yesterday, expressing anger at Nolan Ryan for not having fired Ron Washington, anger at Galloway for not demanding that Washington be fired, and claiming they aren't going to go to TBIA anymore because a cokehead is the manager.  Whatever.
