After "fuming" yesterday over the lack of execution by the Rangers hitters yesterday, Ron Washington is rolling with a rather unique lineup today:

 

Ian Kinsler, 2b
Omar Quintanilla, ss
Michael Young, 1b
Mike Napoli, c
Mitch Moreland, rf
Yorvit Torrealba, dh
David Murphy, lf
Chris Davis, 3b
Endy Chavez, cf

This has the potential to be ugly.  No Hamilton, but it is a day game against a lefty, so he might as well sit.  Andrus is getting a day off as well.  

But when you've got Moreland hitting 5th against a lefty, and Murphy, Davis and Chavez also in the lineup against a lefthanded starter, that's...worrisome.  Of course, whenever Washington rolls out one of these weirdo lineups, the Rangers seem to score a half-dozen runs, so I'll hold off getting too worked up about it...
