Good morning. Crazy to think that the next time it's my turn to do links, it'll be Opening Day. Get hyped!

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' loss to the Dodgers last night but it's cool because Rougie.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the game and notes that Ryan Rua also dingered.

Evan Grant's takeaways from last night's affair covers, among other things, Tony Barnette continuing his great spring after making the journey back from Japan.

Among Jeff Wilson's Surprise Five thoughts is one on if the Rangers are waiting to announce roster decisions because they're still looking to add a player or two.

Sullivan writes that Prince Fielder is the X-factor this season a year after he was probably the team's X-factor as well.

Stefan Stevenson writes that Drew Stubbs is looking for an answer as to whether or not he's going to be on the Opening Day roster.

Grant explains how A.J. Griffin could have won the fifth starter job but also not make the Opening Day roster.

Gil LeBreton says screw the projections, the Rangers have at least 91 wins in 'em.

Kevin Sherrington thinks the possibility for an improved offense is a much bigger story than the back end of the rotation.

Finally, in a Buster Olney ESPN Insider piece, the Rangers' rank as having the 9th toughest schedule in the American League to start the year.

Have a great day!
