Sunday a.m. Rangers stuff

We are back to where we were in mid-April, wondering, what is wrong with Colby Lewis, and what can be done to get him fixed?

Jeff Wilson's game story says that, as bad as Lewis was yesterday, he'll be starting again on Friday, and Ron Washington says Lewis is healthy.

T.R. Sullivan's game story has quotes from Lewis saying that he didn't think he made too many bad pitches.  I will respectfully disagree with Lewis there.  Washington disagrees as well, saying that Lewis made mistakes and left his pitches up.

Evan Grant has his post-game reactions.

Bryan Dolgin has his take at ESPN Dallas.

Grant writes that Lewis is leaving too many pitches up in the zone.

Sullivan's notesinclude quotes from Thad Levine about the bullpen being the focus of the Rangers' trade talks, stuff on Ian Kinsler's road struggles, and an item about Leonys Martin being on the d.l.  Sullivan also mentions that Michael Thomas, one of three minor leaguers acquired from Boston for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, has been released.

The S-T's notes talkabout how the Ranger defense is better than its fielding percentage would indicate, along with an update on the Rangers' first two draft picks, who are expected to sign quickly (and were drafted by the Rangers with the understanding they would be quick and easy signs).

Gil Lebreton talks about the firing of Thad Bosley, and how the Rangers have made it clear they aren't going to stand still.
