Saturday morning Rangers things

I don't even know what I can say about last night's game.  That was amazing.

Anthony Andro's game story marvels that, in the first game of the Greenberg/Ryan regime, on the day Chuck Greenberg had a press conference to talk about his emphasis on improving the fan experience, a sellout crowd experienced one of the most remarkable games in Ranger history.

T.R. Sullivan's game story points out that Nelson Cruz was able to hit the walk-off home run in the 11th because Josh Hamilton had one of the greatest games in Ranger history.

Jeff Caplan calls yesterday the "ultimate bounce-back game."

Richard Durrett says the last three games have shown what this year's Rangers team is all about.

One of the negative points from yesterday's game was Tommy Hunter's performance...he gave up 4 homers in three innings and was pulled relatively quickly for Scott Feldman, although it turns out he was dealing with a stomach bug.

The S-T's notes have an update on Matt Treanor, who starts a rehab assignment on Sunday, and has some quotes from Ron Washington about how he's not giving up on Cristian Guzman, who has been awful since coming from Texas.  Given that Wash has given up on Julio Borbon already, giving up on Guzman would mean greatly limiting his bench options.

Jeff Wilson has a story on Chuck Greenberg's plans, now that his ownership group has finally completed their purchase of the team.

Evan Grant writes that, whatever the initiatives to improve the experience for the fans, winning games will have a bigger effect than anything else.

Jennifer Floyd Engel has a column about how great it is Chuck Greenberg is making the beer cheaper at TBIA.

Jean-Jacques Taylor tore himself away from Cowboys training camp long enough to go to a Ranger game yesterday, and was amazed by the show Josh Hamilton put on, although he still managed to work in four different football references in his first three paragraphs of a baseball column.

Anthony Andro has a story up about Jarrod Saltalamacchia adjusting to being with the Boston organization.
