Good morning. We're one week into the baseball season and the Rangers have only lost like five players. I'll call that a win.

ESPN Dallas got around to having someone cover the games as Randy Jennings provided the rapid reaction to the Rangers' 6-4 14 inning loss to the Houston Astros.

Brian McTaggart and Dave Sessions tag team's recap of the game which saw the Rangers drop the weekend series to the Astros after leaving 15 men on base yesterday.

Katy Clarke recaps yesterday's defeat with quotes from Jeff Banister on George Springer's game-saving catch on a ball Leonys Martin hit to the wall with the bases loaded in the 10th.

Speaking of that catch, Sessions caught up with the vandalized Martin who still can't believe Springer robbed him of the game winner.

Jeff Wilson takes a look at the first week of the season for the Rangers which began with nearly being no-hit and was capped off with a heartbreaking loss yesterday.

Jean-Jacques Taylor writes that Banister took a page out of Michael Young's leadership playbook and isn't losing any sleep over the endless rash of injuries.

As Sessions previews, Texas begins week two as they host the hated Anaheim Angels in a three game set beginning tonight.

At Lone Star Ball's Facebook page we surveyed folks to see how many games they plan to attend this season with 10-15 being around the average it seems. That's probably not nearly enough Jim Knox time for anyone.

Lastly, as Anthony Andro notes, Seahawks QB and Rangers property Russell Wilson was on HBO Real Sports and told Bryant Gumbel that he's considering "pushing the envelope" about playing baseball again.

Have a nice day.
