Sunday a.m. Rangers stuff

Not a bad way to start off the season, eh?

The Rangers are 2-0, although, to my disappointment, they are not in sole possession of first place, as Seattle is also 2-0.  Of course, Seattle being 2-0 means that Oakland, the Rangers' main competition in the A.L. West, has started the season 0-2, so there's that.

It would have been nice if C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis looked a little sharper, but all in all, there's not anything to complain about in the first two games. 

And we have Matt Harrison going for the sweep this afternoon.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about the Rangers recent success against John Lackey.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on the heavy lifting the offense is doing.

Richard Durrett has his reactions from last nights game.

Gil Lebreton has a column on the Ranger bats booming early on.

Durrett has quotes from Adrian Beltre about playing against his old team and the grand slam that put the game away.

Matt Harrison wants to emulate Clay Buchholz's breakout season from last year.

Wilson has quotes from Julio Borbon about the misplay on the first play of the game on Friday, saying that it was a combination of over-aggressiveness and crowd noise that led to the error.

Mason Tobin talks about his major league debut yesterday, which was rougher than he would have liked, but from which he took some positives.

Sullivan's notes hit on Ian Kinsler making history, Julio Borbon, and the bullpen's role in the Opening Day win.

The S-T's notes talk about Mark Lowe's confidence, Mitch Moreland's Opening Day, and a Scott Feldman update.
