Todd Wills provides the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' sloppy 4-2 loss where the 'gers finished getting swept by the Baltimore Orioles over the weekend.

Master Tesfatsion recaps the game and series; a series which saw the Rangers commit dozens of errors, go like 1 for 78 with runners in scoring position, and leave 226 runners on base. Also, Gary Pettis ripped off his mask and revealed himself to be David Freese.

Speaking of Garza, Gerry Fraley notes that Thrusday's starter in the finale of the upcoming four game series with the Yankees is currently undecided. Your options: Ross Wolf, Justin Grimm, or Josh Lindblom.
