Friday morning Rangers news and links

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

Is everyone ready for tonight's home opener?

The Rangers are coming home with a .500 record after yesterday's win against Oakland.

Evan Grant has a game report from the 10-1 Ranger victory.  Evan also says the series split is emblematic of what Texas needs to do in the first half of the season -- stay afloat during the first three road-heavy months, after which the schedule will get easier.

Jeff Banister switched up the lineup yesterday, but he says it wasn't because of production issues.

Alex Espinoza has praise for Nick Martinez's stellar start.

Gil Lebreton believes the opening series signals a "wild ride" for the Rangers.

Elvis Andrus had three errors in his first three games, but he and Jeff Banister think its an aberration.

The Rangers made a roster move yesterday, claiming outfielder Alex Hassan on waivers from Oakland.

The Rangers will most likely make another roster move next week when Tanner Scheppers is ready to be activated from the d.l., and he got closer to that yesterday when he struck out the side in an inning of work for Frisco.

The S-T's notes talk about Derek Holland pitching tonight, Delino DeShields, Jr., Elvis's defense, and the Hassan waiver claim.

Stefan Stevenson has a rundown of the various promotions at TBiA this season.

Finally, Sports Illustrated has a story on Mliton Bradley, whose wife died in October, seemingly due to injuries suffered at Bradley's hands.  Warning...this is a pretty disturbing story on the disturbed former Ranger, and his wife's tragic, premature death.
