Good morning. There's no better way to start a day than by reading about Adrian Beltre wanting to remain a Texas Ranger for the rest of his career.

T.R. Sullivan writes about the Rangers looking to possibly guarantee Beltre's 2016 option year before the season begins.

Jeff Wilson writes about Beltre's desire to remain in Texas as long as the Rangers uphold their end of the bargain and continue to try to win.

Ron Matejko notes at ESPN Dallas that the Rangers will discuss extending Beltre beyond 2016 as both parties are open to the idea.

Sullivan has some quotes from Mike Maddux about an especially sharp Neftali Feliz among various relievers who caught his eye during throwing sessions yesterday.

Stefan Stevenson reports that just two days into camp the Rangers already have their first sidelined player. If you had Michael Kirkman in the season's first injury betting pool, congratulations you wager on weird and mean things.

Among various notes from Surprise, Sullivan writes that Jeff Banister is committed to keeping Ryan Rua in the outfield this spring.

On his blog, Sullivan writes about Camp Banister being all about quick and efficient process-oriented workouts.

Here's video of Derek Holland in his muscle shirt answering questions that Anthony Andro culled from the baseball Twitterverse.

The Question of the Week at Lone Star Ball's Facebook page asked for your player to watch this spring (as if it isn't Joey Gallo).

Finally, the classic Simpsons episode "Homer at the Bat" turned 23 years old last Friday. Ian Denomme wonders which players from today's game would make the episode if it were re-made today.

Have a nice day.
