Wednesday a.m. Rangers stuff

Quite a game last night. 

Anthony Andro's game story leads by saying that David Murphy may be establishing himself as the team's starting outfielder, rather than the 4th outfielder.  His hot week has raised his OPS on the season from 696 to 751.

T.R. Sullivan's game story notes that Murphy beat a Hall of Famer to get the Rangers the walk-off win.

Evan Grant says that beating Mariano Rivera last night shows the Rangers are a legit playoff threat.

Rich Harden is getting his next start pushed back.

Sullivan's notes includes updates on some injured Rangers.

Ian Kinsler's MRI showed there was still some inflammation in his groin, and thus he's going to not be likely to return until the end of the month.  Given the size of the Rangers' lead, being cautious with Kinsler, and making sure he's good to go in October, would seem to be the best plan.

Tim Cowlishaw says that it is safe to say the Rangers are going to win the A.L. West.

Gil Lebreton says the Rangers' series against New York is a chance to show that money doesn't guarantee you wins.
