USA TODAY Sports

Busy day for the Rangers yesterday, who drafted three players in the amateur draft and lost a very frustrating and disappointing game in Boston.

The game story on the Rangers' website has a quote from Ron Washington saying he couldn't have lived with Dustin Pedroia beating him, which is why he walked Pedroia in the 9th and had Michael Kirkman face David Ortiz, who his a walk-off homer.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Evan Grant has a story on the dilemma the Rangers are faced with in regards to Michael Kirkman.

Gil Lebreton has a column talking about how the Rangers are missing Ian Kinsler right now.

Chris McGuiness is coming up to be the Rangers' primary first baseman while Mitch Moreland is out, and Ron Washington says he doesn't care if McGuiness can hit so long as McGuiness plays good defense.

Drew Davison has a story on the Rangers' first three picks in the draft.

T.R. Sullivan also has a story on the Rangers' selections yesterday, with Kip Fagg saying that first rounder Travis Demeritte has "electric bat speed."

A.J. Preller says the Rangers were excited to see Alex Gonzalez, expected to be taken before the Rangers picked, still available at the Rangers' spot.
