Saturday a.m. Rangers stuff

Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, does it feel to know that your Texas Rangers are a half-game back in the Wild Card race?  The Angels lost last night, which means Texas is a half-game back of Anaheim, and tied with Baltimore, for the second wild card spot.

This race would be a lot less interesting for Rangers fans if there were still a single wild card spot.

Texas took down the Tigers last night, 2-0.

Jeff Wilson says in his game story that the Rangers are showing they can win games in a variety of ways.

The Rangers website has a write-up on yesterday's win, and the DMN has a game report.

Gerry Fraley writes about Colby Lewis's win yesterday tying him for the A.L. lead in wins.

The Rangers made a pair of moves yesterday, sending Jon Edwards to San Diego to complete the Will Venable trade, and sending Michael Choice to Cleveland.

Gerry Fraley talks about Rougned Odor's recent success hitting 7th.

Pudge Rodriguez has been elected to the Latino Baseball Hall of Fame, and will be inducted on December 5.  Among those elected, former Rangers Sammy Sosa and Omar Vizquel are also included.

The S-T's notes talk about Neftali Feliz, Michael Choice and why Shin-Soo Choo is hitting 2nd instead of Rougned Odor.
