Sunday morning Rangers news and links

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

That was a very frustrating loss last night.

Anthony Andro's game story has quotes from Shawn Tolleson, who gave up 3 runs in .2 IP to earn the blown save and loss, saying that he didn't think he pitched poorly last night.

Chris Fittz's game story talks about the Rangers honoring Juan Gonzalez and Jeff Russell prior to the loss.

The DMN has a recap of yesterday's loss.

Gerry Fraley writes that Jeff Banister is going with a more "meritocratic" approach to the lineup in the second half, with Delino DeShields already having earned more playing time.

Stefan Stevenson says that DeShields sets the tone for the Rangers.

Gil Lebreton has a column about the Rangers being a flawed team, but still being in the playoff hunt.

Jon Daniels says the team is looking for a righthanded bat and bullpen help this month in the trade market, and isn't in "sell" mode.

T.R. Sullivan says that the Rangers like Cole Hamels, but don't want to absorb his contract and give up the prospects Philly wants for him.

The S-T's notes talk about Gonzalez, Russell, Ross Detwiler being DFA'd, and Martin Perez re-joining the rotation this coming weekend.

The DMN's notes talk about Perez, Wandy Rodriguez, Nick Martinez, Nomar Mazara and Nick Williams.
