Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers fell to the Houston Astros last night by a score of 5-3.

Levi Weaver’s game story looks for the positives in last night’s loss.

Stefan Stevenson has his game story from last night’s game, as well as his “Rangers Reaction.”

Evan Grant’s game story says this loss exemplifies the long, difficult rebuilding road the Rangers face.

Chris Martin was sent down yesterday to make room for Ronald Guzman on the active roster, despite Martin’s performance not warranting him being sent down.

Martin Perez will make a rehab start for Round Rock on Thursday, after which he could make another rehab start, or could return to the majors.

Kevin Sherrington thinks the Rangers should pay $40 million of Shin-Soo Choo’s salary to get him off the roster so that Willie Calhoun can come up, and takes some shots at Ryan Rua and Carlos Tocci, all of which leads me to wonder if he’s a commenter here at LSB.

The Rangers signed draft pick Jax Biggers, and have now exceeded their bonus pool, triggering a tax penalty.

Jamey Newberg takes a look at the Rangers J-2 signings from this week.

The Rangers’ website notes talk about Ronald Guzman, Chris Martin, Martin Perez, Joey Gallo, and some recently signed Rangers draft picks.
