Good morning. I'd post the video highlight of the double play that Roogie and Elvis turned in last night's game but it's not available to embed from MLB.com because it was obviously pornographic.

Katy Clarke has the recap of the Rangers' 8-1 blasting of the Baltimore Orioles in the series opener from Camden.

Jeff Wilson's game story covers Mitch Moreland hitting two dingers for Texas as the Rangers scored as many runs in Monday night's game as they had in their previous three games in Toronto.

Evan Grant writes about Carlos Corporan's contributions as a personal catcher for Wandy Rodriguez.

Wilson notes that Josh Hamilton wasn't activated yesterday as expected as the Rangers decided to give him a day off after traveling and probably because it appears as though Hamilton isn't even healed up all the way yet.

Nevertheless, Hamilton will be activated today writes Grant. Oh, and he might be the team's center fielder as well.

Jean-Jacques Taylor writes that it has become apparent that these Rangers need Josh Hamilton to return and be more like the Hamilton of old than it was anticipated they would need him to be when they acquired him.

MLB.com's probably-not-Jake-Smolinski-using-a-fake-name Connor Smolensky preview's tonight's game which should see the return of Hamilton for the Rangers in the ballpark where he had arguably his most famous game.

Lastly, Wilson writes that when Prince Fielder is named to the All-Star team (as he's probably the only Ranger worthy of a spot this year), should he be asked to, he'll participate in the Home Run Derby.

Have a nice day.
