Wednesday a.m. Rangers stuff

8.5 games up now in the A.L. West.  BP puts the Rangers' odds of making the playoffs at 92.73%.  This is very good.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Cliff Lee being Cliff Lee, despite the offense not providing much run support in his four starts as a Ranger.

T.R. Sullivan has quotes from Nelson Cruz and Michael Young, raving about Lee's performance.

Evan Grant breaks down Lee's pitches from last night, saying that Lee's strategy is simple:  command his fastball and throw quality strikes.

Richard Durrett has post-game reactions at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Gil Lebreton has a column up on the greatness of Cliff Lee.

In non-Cliff Lee news, Anthony Andro's notes discuss the imminent decision on Rich Harden, who has indicated he's ready to return to the majors in the wake up his latest rehab start.  The Rangers could activate him on Friday and have him start in place of Scott Feldman, who, were that to happen, would presumably go to the bullpen.

The Rangers' website's notes includes news on the signing of second round pick Cody Buckel, and Julio Borbon's return to the lineup.

T.R. Sullivan has an update on the Rangers' ongoing hunt for a righthanded hitting first baseman, along with some quotes from Chris Davis about the possibility of his playing time being cut back.
