Wherein we usher in the morning with a song dedicated to Josh Hamilton:
● Josh Hamilton dropped some Bible verses at the outset and end of yesterday's press conference. Jean-Jacques Taylor writes that Hamilton was right in stating that he owes the Rangers nothing, because he owes it to himself to maximize the proceeds from his next contract. MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan recaps the Hamilton presser. So does Jeff Wilson. Behind the paywall, Evan Grant says that Hamilton's future in Texas will depend upon having a "happy home."
● T.R. Sullivan's notes include a mildly positive update on Mitch Moreland's wrist, Nelson Cruz attempting to stay healthy, and Cody Eppley hunting for a roster spot, as well as some remarks from Ron Washington on how good Koji Uehara's stuff looks early on in camp. Richard Durrett says that Matt Harrison is reading books again.
● CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman says the Rangers had the seventh-best off-season in the game. Drew Davison talks to Matt West about his conversion to the mound and corresponding ascendance in the prospect realm. David Murphy says that he thinks he might have been under consideration at one point for the now-occupied role of Hamilton's accountability partner.
