Thursday morning Rangers news and links

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Well, Ben has disappeared this morning, so I'm doing the links.  Hopefully he hasn't been eaten by the animals he's taking care of in his current job.

The Rangers lost yesterday, 12-3, but still were 7-2 on the road trip, which is a good thing.

The Rangers' website game story deals with the ugliness from yesterday.

Gerry Fraley has a game story from yesterday's loss.

Josh Hamilton got his first hit of the season, and it made him very happy.

The blowout allowed Jeff Banister to experiment with Delino DeShields at second base yesterday.

Peter Ellwood asks whether the streaking Rangers are for real, though this was before yesterday's disaster, so he apparently hexed them.

Fraley says that, despite the 7-2 road trip, the Rangers are in a "mini-crisis" with their pitching.

Prince Fielder is tearing it up this season.

Hamilton plays his first game in Arlington since being traded back to Texas today, and Jeff Mosier has a piece on it that includes some quotes from a certain SBN blogger.

The S-T's notes talk about Josh Hamilton's return to Arlington, Jon Edwards being called up, and Carlos Peguero being traded.

Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is hosting a $100,000 one-day fantasy baseball league today. It's $3 to join and first place wins $8,000. Enter now!
