New, 1021 comments

The Rangers lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS has been posted.  It is:

Ian Kinsler -- 2B

Elvis Andrus -- SS

Josh Hamilton -- CF

Michael Young -- 1B

Adrian Beltre -- 3B

Mike Napoli -- C

Nelson Cruz -- RF

Yorvit Torrealba -- DH

Craig Gentry -- LF

C.J. Wilson is pitching.

The one thing I'm sort of mystified about is Gentry in left field.  He's been acknowledged as the team's best defensive outfielder, so I don't get why he's in left field instead of centerfield.
