Jeff Wilson writes that now that the Rangers are back in the playoff mix, this week's homestand against the equally hot Blue Jays and wild card contending Orioles could shape September for Texas.

Evan Grant checks out how the Rangers' schedule stacks up the rest of the way with just 39 games to go and all but 12 of those against AL West teams.

Stefan Stevenson notes that the Rangers signed OF Drew Stubbs to a minor league deal yesterday with Josh Hamilton and Leonys Martin's injuries having left the Rangers a little thin in the outfield.

Jon Daniels took a moment away from acquiring outfielders to join the Ben and Skin show and the DMN has some highlights from his appearance.'s Gregor Chisholm previews tonight's opener between the Jays and Rangers in what could be an October preview.

Matt Snyder has Jeff Banister creeping up his list of AL Manager of the Year candidates.

Finally, speaking of Banister, he wrote a guest column for vacationing Buster Olney about his quest to be The Ultimate Leadsman of Leaderville.
