Friday morning Rangers things

Frustrating loss yesterday, as the Rangers drop two of three to Anaheim.

Jeff Wilson's game story looks at the fateful events that led to the Angels' lone (unearned) run, and the failure of the bats to get much going against Jered Weaver.

T.R. Sullivan's game story points out that this was the 7th time in 8 games that the Ranger pitchers have limited the other side to one run or less.

Jeff Caplan has his thoughts on yesterday's game at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Evan Grant has a story behind the paywall about C.J. Wilson's outing.

Gil Lebreton has a column on the upcoming trade deadline, in which he suggests a big move is unlikely this year.  He also talks about Chris Davis, who he thinks is trade bait, and Mitch Moreland, who, he says, has the team's support, despite putting up below-average numbers for a first baseman since coming up to the majors.

Anthony Andro looks at the buyers and sellers in the A.L. West, with the Rangers being one of the teams he expects to be a buyer.

Caplan writes that Josh Hamilton tried wearing sunglasses at the plate for his first three at bats yesterday, in an effort to address his daytime hitting problems.

The S-T's notes talk about Michael Young's hamstring, Josh Hamilton's day-time struggles, and the Rangers' defense this month.

Sullivan's notes talk about Yoshinori Tateyama's role in the bullpen and the pitching and defense keying the Rangers' winning streak.
