Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

The Rangers lost again yesterday. Everyone panic.

Gerry Fraley has a game report from yesterday's 2-1 loss to Cincinnati.

Richard Durrett has part two of how the Rangers' big offseason deals came together, detailing the recruitment of Shin-Soo Choo and how the Rangers ended up landing him. One of the things that jumped out at me was the connection made between Choo and Ron Washington from the outset, with Scott Boras talking about how players come away from these meetings wanting to play for Wash.

Jeff Wilson has a story on the Rangers' team chemistry, and the leadership role Elvis Andrus is expected to take on in 2014.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Ron Washington having to adjust his managing to deal with the new replay system that is in place this year.

Wash says he learned a lot from three replay reviews in Thursday's game.

Neftali Feliz says he's on track for the regular season and ready to be the Rangers' closer.

T.R. Sullivan also has a story on Feliz, with Feliz saying his focus is on reclaiming his old job as the Rangers' closer, rather than worrying about his velocity.

Fraley writes that Prince Fielder has been hitting the ball on the ground too much this spring.

And speaking of Fielder, Anthony Andro has a piece taking a look at the first basemen in the A.L. West.

The S-T's notes talk about Adrian Beltre possibly returning on Sunday, and the new rule on collisions at home plate.

The S-T's Spring Break segment focuses on Robbie Ross and the charitable work he and his wife do.
