Sunday morning Rangers news and links

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Opening Day Eve, you guys. Just one more day before Opening Day.

That being said, Randy Galloway wants to make sure you know that there's nothing to look forward to this season. His column boils down to, the team is cursed because Nolan left, Bob and Ray are bad owners, JD is in over his head, Texas shouldn't have let Joe Nathan and Nelson Cruz leave, and we need to "pray for 85 wins."

So, I guess we might as well just start counting the days until Cowboys training camp opens...

Richard Durrett, at least, gives five reasons the Rangers will win the West, and five reasons they won't, so you can decide which you find more persuasive.

Lyle Spencer looks at the strengths and weaknesses of the A.L. West teams, and says that health could ultimately determine who finishes first among the Angels, A's and Rangers.

Jeff Wilson's game story from the final exhibition has Joe Saunders talking about how he'll be ready once the games start counting, despite being rocked in his last two starts in the games that don't count.

Richard Durrett writes that Joe Saunders isn't worried about his results right now.

Jeff Wilson has a story on Michael Choice's first Opening Day being with the Rangers, the team he rooted for growing up.

Wilson has a story on the final roster moves the Rangers made to start the season. Durrett also runs down the final roster moves from Saturday.

Evan Grant has a blog post on the final roster moves, with Ron Washington calling the roster very "fluid" right now.

T.R. Sullivan's notes talk about the final roster moves and Yu Darvish throwing on Saturday.

The DMN offers "pundits" predictions for the coming season.

And finally, MLB.com has a story on Geno Petralli's son, James, who is a musician.
