Good morning. The Rangers didn't play yesterday so not much was written about the Rangers because why would anyone write about the 2014 Rangers?
Stefan Stevenson writes that the Ranger players know that the team is an injury-riddled mess but they still like winning more than losing.
T.R. Sullivan remembers all 36 pitchers who have taken the mound for the Rangers this season. Holy cow, remember Pedro Figueroa? What happened to Ben Rowen? Has anyone seen Alexi Ogando? Is there even a doubt that Mitch Moreland could out-perform Daniel McCutchen on the mound over the course of a season? Could you pick Seth Rosin out of a crowd?
Calvin Watkins notes that the Rangers put, among others, Yu Darvish, Adrian Beltre, and Elvis Andrus on waivers!! Don't panic, though. They were revocable waivers and all of them cleared. Unfortunately, so do Shin-Soo Choo.
The DFW has a transcript of GM JD with Cowlishaw and Mosley on KESN-FM 103.3 yesterday where he made it clear that the Rangers were in charge of the decision to put Darvish on the DL and it's not Darvish quitting on the team (because that's apparently a thing that people believe).
WFAA.com's Peter Ellwood writes about Neftali Feliz's return to the big leagues and how he's trying to figure it out without his hot hot heat.
Prospect Nomar Mazara will still be 19 when the minor league season opens next year and he's already been a Player of the Week in the Texas League.
Finally, if you think that Pete Rose will be reinstated with MLB electing a new commissioner, well now you can put your money where your mouth is.
