Anthony Andro has a game story up at the Fox Sports Southwest website.

Evan Grant offers his thoughts on yesterday's game.

Richard Durrett has his "Rapid Reaction" at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Durrett has a piece on Derek Holland's more-than-solid start yesterday.

Ron Washington calls Mike Adams' command "crazy" right now.

Ron Washington also says that, despite Adams' success and Joe Nathan's early struggles, Nathan is still his closer.

The S-T's notes talk about Nathan as closer, Elvis Andrus getting a day off, and the Josh Hamilton contract situation.

The Rangers' website notes include talk about Elvis hitting to the opposite field, the closer situation, and Matt Harrison's strong start to the season.
