About One Fifth of the Way Through the Season; Still First Place Texas Rangers, For Now

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
Crash Davis cannot quite make it work in the bigs.  Salty has ongoing issues.  Remember when we all thought that Gerald Laird was expendable.  And Scotter Feldman still hasn't quite figured things out.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining:
Vlad.  CJ Wilson.  Colby, "Mr. Baseball" Lewis.  Neftali, "Nolan Jr." Feliz.  All have been nothing short of spectacular, in that order.  Elvis is leading off now and showing why he should be.  Jedi Josh Hamilton and Michael Young are figuring things out at the plate.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes:
Three at home against the second place A's starting tomorrow night.  Your Texas Rangers are only leading the division by 1 game.  This is where the Rangers can put some distance between themselves and the whole division or make it clear that this thing is going to be up in the air for some time to come.

The sale of your Texas Rangers is still in limbo because of the supposed convoluted mess that is the current ownership's financial situation.  Remember, MLB has supposedly has threatened to take over the Rangers after creditors rejected the terms of the sale to Greenberg and Nolan Ryan's group.  I, for one, cannot wait until the book is written about what truly happened to the Rangers' ownership.  Will Evan Grant write that book?  I hope so.  I know I'll read it.
