Tuesday morning Rangers stuff

Jeff Wilson has a story on Julio Borbon, who says he was too passive last year, resulting in him getting behind in counts and passing on hittable pitches.  Texas needs more offense from Borbon than they got last season...

Evan Grant looks at the Rangers' payroll, noting it is well above the $75-80 million the Greenberg/Ryan ownership group projected when they were first soliciting investors, and observing that the payroll could end up the highest it has ever been in team history.

T.R. Sullivan says that Matt Harrison, who takes the mound today, took steps this offseason to improve the mental side of his game.

Jeff Caplan has a piece on Michael Young, and says that, despite the rancorous offseason and trade demand, there's no signs of unhappiness from Young this spring.

Colby Lewis says he feels good after his spring debut.

The S-T's notes include a Q&A with Engel Beltre, and notes on Young at first base, Brandon Webb, and Tanner Scheppers.

Randy Galloway asked six members of the Rangers' organization who their surprise "pick to click" for the Ranger rotation this spring would be, and half of them named Michael Kirkman.
