Off-days are a better when they come after a win.  They are a whole lot better when they come after 8 wins in a row.

Anthony Andro's game story questions the wisdom of walking Vladimir Guerrero to bring up Josh Hamilton, when Hamilton had driven in the tying run the previous inning.  Hamilton, of course, responding by singling off lefty Gustavo Chacin to bring in the winning run.

T.R. Sullivan's game story leads off with Ian Kinsler praising Hamilton for the way he's carried the team on this trip.

Evan Grant's post-game story is about the greatness of Josh Hamilton.

The S-T's notes talk about the Rangers' willingness to deal within the division (in particular, vis-a-vis the Mariners' Cliff Lee), and includes Ron Washington saying that Craig Gentry will be sent down to make room for Nelson Cruz.  Joaquin Arias continues to survive on the roster...

Sullivan has a plethora of notes, including some stuff on Cruz's pending return, Ron Washington's desire for a top of the rotation starter, and Andres Blanco starting for Elvis Andrus yesterday.
