Texas starts a three game series against Anaheim tonight. Colby Lewis versus Jerome Williams.

Drew Davison has a story about Roy Oswalt, and how he's hoping to help Texas get back to the World Series.

The Rangers' website has a story about Oswalt wanting to be a veteran presence in a young rotation.

Kevin Sherrington has a column on Oswalt, whom he describes as "gritty" while sharing anecdotes about his time in Round Rock and how a shock from his truck fixed his arm once.

T.R. Sullivan has a piece on the draft, and what the Rangers are looking for in players that they select.

Ken Rosenthal has a column on the impact of the new CBA -- and in particular, the additional wild card team and the change in draft pick compensation -- on the trade market this summer, predicting that teams will be less inclined to give up as much as they once were for short-term rentals.
