So I Haven't Been Watching the Rangers This Last Month, Have I Missed Anything?

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
Harden has not panned out.  Scooter Feldman hasn't pitched as well as last year. 

It's before the All-Star game and June was as hot as August usually is in North Texas.  In other words, there's a lot of baseball to play.

Otherwise, I really cannot complain.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining:
Where should I start?  Vladdy Daddy = great; CJ Wilson's made the transition to starter; Cobra "Mr. Baseball" Lewis is the ace of the staff; Frankie Fran is great as a set up guy; if Frankie pitched the night before just in bring Darren Oliver; oh yeah, and this young closer Neftali "Nolan Jr." Feliz isn't too shabby; Elvis is a wizard at short and great lead-off man; Michael Young is just doing what he always does season after season; and Jedi Josh is batting about .500 for the month of June.  There's more goodness but, that's just the highlights.

In June: 20 wins in 25 played, with a 13 game win streak mixed in there.

Did I mention that as of today your Texas Rangers are tied with the biggest lead in their division? (The Padres also lead their division by 4.5 games.)

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes:
3 at the Halos coming up.  Biggest series of the season?  Probably, and the series are only going to get bigger the longer they stay in first.  Then they play 3 at home against the White Stockings who are only 2 back in their division.  Let's see how the Rangers are doing after the next 6 games.
