Saturday a.m. Rangers things

So, Rich Harden was bad yesterday, and the offense was bad yesterday.  No better way to start a road trip.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Harden's struggles...he says that Harden's rotation spot is safe for now, given the lack of other options, and his walks are down of late, but he's still not been good.

T.R. Sullivan's game story also focuses on Harden, including some quotes from Brewer manager Ken Macha, who managed Harden in Oakland, on the difference he sees in Harden now compared to then.

Wilson's notes in the S-T include an update on Derek Holland and Nelson Cruz, the news that the lenders are pressing the bankruptcy court to re-open the Ranger sales process, and an update on the catching situation, with Jon Daniels saying the team isn't planning on bringing Jarrod Saltalamacchia back up anytime soon.

Sullivan also has some notes up, including info on the catching situation and Holland and Cruz, along with talk about today's starting outfielders against lefty Manny Parra.
