Otto Greule Jr

Hi, everyone!

Rangers have the best record in baseball, are 5.5 games up on second place Oakland, are 10 games up on the Angels, and are going for the sweep on the road against the M's today.

Jeff Wilson's game story highlights the contributions of David Murphy in defeating Felix Hernandez, who now has 18 losses in his career against Texas.

T.R. Sullivan's game story hits on Derek Holland out-dueling Felix Hernandez, while maintaining a 0.00 ERA at Safeco.

Evan Grant's game story praises the strong outing Holland had yesterday.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction at ESPN Dallas.

Wilson has a story on Derek Holland's efforts to perform to the level that fans expect him to perform.

Drew Davison has a story on Mike Olt, who has treated a problem with his right eye and has returned to baseball activities.

Sullivan has a story on the blown double play call Friday, where Justin Grimm caught the throw to first instead of Mitch Moreland, and umpire Jeff Nelson's comments on Saturday about the play.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Ron Washington, who will later this season become the winningest manager in team history.

Ron Washington says that Elvis Andrus will get today's game off, and will also get one of the two doubleheader games off.

Evan Grant writes that Elvis does his best work against the best pitchers, but has focus issues that hurt his consistency.

The S-T's notes talk about Lance Berkman's home run total, Colby Lewis's rehab start, and umpire Jeff Nelson explaining what happened on the phantom double play Friday night.

Sullivan's notes hit on Joe Nathan being on pace to void his 2014 option, Lewis's rehab start, Murphy's hot streak, and Ross Wolf moving to the bullpen.
