Oh Scooter...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Scooter Feldman just cannot seem to put together a good game much less a good inning this year.  He's 0-6 with and ERA north of 6.  When the Rangers could really use a spot starter to come through, Scooter just hasn't delivered.

And Josh is in the hospital with an intestinal virus (that sound unpleasant to say the least) getting fluids through an IV.  Same thing that put Doogie Holland on the DL?  Don't know.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Still up 3 games on the Halos even though the pitching and offense has been inconsistent.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: The thing about Scooter's performance that really hurts is two-fold: (1) on the one side Scooter could have played himself into the rotation (at least for a while) especially with Ogando, Feliz and Holland out and Oswalt not ready yet but, his play has made that all but impossible; (2) and if Scooter had played well and when Feliz, Holland, Ogando and Oswalt are ready to pitch, Scooter would have been great trade bait to offer a team near the trade deadline.  Oh well.
