Happy Yu Darvish will be pitching in something like a baseball game day!

Evan Grant has some quotes from Nolan Ryan about the payroll being manageable as it reaches $127 million.

Jeff Wilson has a piece on Colby Lewis who is in the interesting position of being something of a forgotten man in the rotation while also being the likely Opening Day starter.

T.R. Sullivan writes about the one award that has eluded the Rangers throughout franchise history.

On SportsDay On Air, Grant spoke about what to expect from Darvish's first spring start and what the Rangers expect from Darvish in 2012.

Bryan Dolgin's Rangers Magazine piece at ESPN Dallas focuses on the importance of the Rangers' scouts.

Richard Durrett writes about Matt West impressing early in spring.

Sullivan's notes cover Scott Feldman and Lewis' outing from yesterday's intrasquad game, the team's thoughts on expanded playoffs, Beltre skipping the game yesterday, and other notes.

Drew Davison has a bunch of notes. Here's an enjoyable one:

Several plays stood out to Washington, including shortstop prospect Jurickson Profar making a nice defensive play and first baseman Ronald Guzman making a nice stretch. "They can play, and they showed it, too," Washington said.

Durrett also has a wealth of notes from the first intrasquad game of spring.

Gil Lebreton writes about David Murphy being a nice fella.

Davison catches up with Mark Hamburger and mentions the Rangers have filmed promotional commercials featuring Derek Holland, Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus and Michael Young.

Durrett's Surprise Six features six articles of things that happened yesterday.

Finally, here's a video of Josh Hamilton hitting a double off of Sean Green yesterday. Baseball.
