Good morning, folks...Ben isn’t responding to texts or phone calls this morning. Did he oversleep? Did he forget? Or will his excuse be, “Man, I’ve just been really busy lately”? We eagerly await the excuse du jour...

The Rangers lost, 3-2, yesterday, and Evan Grant has some thoughts.

After his outing yesterday, Yu Darvish said he is happy with his progress this spring.

Darvish doesn’t have the weird feeling in his elbow that he had last season.

Levi Weaver has a game story and various notes.

Andrew Cashner hopes to be back on the mound soon after dealing with biceps tendinitis.

Evan Grant’s latest roster projection expects Cashner to start the season on the d.l.

Jeff Wilson says that the focus on Matt Bush’s off-the-field story has resulted in his on-the-field story going largely untold.

Evan talks about Mike Napoli and Rougned Odor.

Mac Engel has a story on Jeff Banister’s view on defeating fear. I assume Banny says “Fear is the mid-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.”

Meet catcher Jose Trevino, who will be behind the plate for your Frisco Roughriders this summer.

Doug Bernier has put together a baseball website to help players learn about the game.

Jim Callis looks at some of the prospects in the Rangers’ camp. Callis also has a Q&A with lefty pitching prospect Joe Palumbo.

The number nine prospect on the top Rangers prospect list is Anderson Tejeda.

Jon Daniels and Mike Daly testified yesterday at a criminal trial involving people associated with bringing Leonys Martin out of Cuba.

Wilson has his “Surprise Five” notes from camp.

T.R. Sullivan has notes on Darvish, Elvis Andrus, and Tyson Ross.
