Good morning.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the Rangers’ 9-2 win last night that for some reason shows up as a 15-9 loss when I check the box score.

Levi Weaver recaps the game where the Rangers allowed more at-bats with runners in scoring position than in any game in franchise history.

Evan Grant writes that getting Cole Hamels back was really exciting until Cole Hamels actually pitched.

The headline from William Kosileski’s recap over at MLB dot com reads “Hamels has mixed results in 4 1/3-inning return” which seems like the most optimistic view imaginable.

Among Grant’s notes is the latest theory on why the bullpen has been obscene this season: No Joe Nathans to keep the youngins in line.

If you quickly scroll by the Lewis Brinson highlights and Nick Williams exploits without your vision becoming blurred with white hot tears, you’ll find DEWD starter Jonathan Hernandez among William Boor’s Top Prospect Performers from yesterday.

Kosileski previews tonight’s game which features the other Rangers starter who recently came back from injury and looked shaky.

And, lastly, Enrique Rojas includes Adrian Beltre among the latinos who could soon have their números retirados. Seems like a foregone conclusion that no one will wear dos nueve in Texas after Beltre retires.

Have a nice day!
