This isn't going to be the only post of the day leading up to the potential ratings-busting series opener against the Angels, nor is it the post I wanted to write after a twin bill ... but I'm a bit worn out, and so this is what you get for the moment:
T.R. Sullivan recaps yesterday's Game 1 and Game 2, with the first being notable because of Colby Lewis becoming the first pitcher in major league history to allow five home runs and amass 10 strikeouts in a single start, and the second being a nice bounceback win in spite of a horrific three-error second inning.
Richard Durrett writes about Robbie Ross attempting to live down a wrong-jersey moment late during Game 2, which necessitated an emergency uniform retrieval.
Randy Galloway says that C.J. Wilson doesn't deserve the torrent of boos that will almost assuredly be rained down upon him tonight, and ties the Metroplex's disdain for Wilson together with its disdain for Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez.
Jeff Wilson notes that Adrian Beltre is just about ready to return to the Rangers' lineup on a full-time basis, and says that Ron Washington is leaning towards starting Mike Napoli behind the plate tonight.
