Sunday a.m. Rangers things

Well, no sweep, after yesterday's loss.  Scott Feldman caught a lot of the criticism for last night's loss, but Feldman pitched was the offense, that has scored 6 runs in 3 games in this series, that let the Rangers down last night.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Feldman being great early before falling apart in the middle innings, with Ron Washington calling Feldman "consistently inconsistent."

T.R. Sullivan, in his game story, says that teams are calling the Rangers about pitching and thus could be dealt, while the Rangers continue their search for a righthanded first baseman.

Richard Durrett's post game notes talk about whether Feldman did enough to keep his spot in the rotation with his performance yesterday.

Wilson also writes that the Rangers are aggressively shopping for a righthanded hitter who can come off the bench and play first baseman, and are apparently willing to deal quality prospects to land someone like Wes Helms, who Wilson identifies as the best fit, or Jorge Cantu.

Anthony Andro's notes includes discussing Taylor Teagarden's return to Texas and Derek Holland's rehab start.

Sullivan's notes also hit on those issues, along with the ceremony yesterday honoring Tom Grieve.  William Wilkerson has a story in the S-T about Grieve's induction.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Grieve, who Lebreton says built a playoff-level team, even if the Rangers never made the playoffs while Grieve was g.m.

Wilson has a Q&A with Jon Daniels about the Rangers' performance this year.

Kevin Sherrington writes that the Rangers can't be patient with Scott Feldman and Chris Davis in the middle of a pennant race.
