Good morning. Picture day! Now we know what Antoan Richardson looks like!

Evan Grant writes that Jeff Banister used yesterday's rainy day as a lesson on making adjustments on the fly.

Anthony Andro notes that the Rangers had other activities to focus on besides baseball as they were briefed by the Players Association on the new pace of play rules.

Jeff Wilson writes that Derek Holland's maturity and baseball appreciation are in the best shape of his life.

T.R. Sullivan has an update on the various maladies in camp so far including yesterday's news that Elvis Andrus has a sore knee.

Grant writes that Shawn Tolleson wants to be the Rangers' Liam Neeson as the guy with a special set of skills linking the starters to the back end of the bullpen.

Sullivan writes that Prince Fielder is feeling good, likes where his swing is at, and is looking forward to hitting some dingers.

Fangraphs Kiley McDaniel has a few notes on this year's J2 international signing period which is relevant to the Rangers as they'll have the third largest bonus pool to work with.

Over at Lone Star Ball's Facebook page we asked which Rangers player you feel is the most irreplaceable in 2015. There's the obvious answers of Yu Darvish and Adrian Beltre, because they're the best Rangers players, but what if the Rangers lost someone like Leonys Martin for an extended amount of time? Centerfield depth is pretty scary right now. And heaven forbid something happen to Adam Rosales.

Stefan Stevenson offers up some notes including what the Rangers got up to with the weather keeping them off the field yesterday.

Finally, here's how you make a Profar/Gee trade work:

Have a nice day.
