High-five Kelley No. 84!

Can you imagine a world next season where Houston and Seattle are considered baseball "rivals"? At least we have a reason to dislike the Mariners. We had to watch our team play them in the Kingdome.

T.R. Sullivan's game recap is about Adrian Beltre having the testicular fortitude to field his position when Matt Harrison starts games.

Master T. Tesfatsion is back to provide the ESPN Dallas rapid reaction to the Ranger 4-0 win over the Seattle Mariners.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Harrison not being your traditional "Mr. Automatic" but he comes as close to it as the Rangers currently have. Also, more on Beltre's testicles.

Not wanting to shrink from the subject and be left out in the cold, Fraley also writes behind the DMN paywall about Harrison's symbiotic relationship with Beltre's personal athletic supporter preferences.

Richard Durrett reports on Neftali Feliz's rehab start being bumped to Frisco tonight with last night's scheduled start in Round Rock being washed out.

T.R. Sullivan and Christian Corona's Notebook welcomes back Alexi Ogando and Koji Uehara to baseball's best bullpen. There is also a bunch of other items including one where Ron Washington admits that Yoshinori Tateyama is a ROOGY.

Wilson's notes cover the Rangers' catching situation with Yorvit Torrealba going on paternity leave and Mike Napoli banged up, the status of several recovering pitchers, and Oswalt tinkering, among other notes.

Lastly, the DMN once again has a slideshow featuring the weeks had by the Rangers' Top 12 prospects. Where's Nick Williams at?
