Rangers Win First Two Versus Padres, Win Another Series

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Much like sweeping the 'Stros, big deal, the Padres are in last place in their division.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Scooter Feldman got his first win, alert the media!  Josh is back.  And again, like sweeping the 'Stros, they beat a basement dweller like a drum like they're supposed to, so good.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: The word of the day today is perspective, from the Oxford Dictionaries meaning: a particular attitude towards or way of regarding something.  In this context everyone needs to keep the Rangers' season to date in perspective.  Yes, they've had weird lapses in offense.  Yes, they've suffered some injuries, particularly to the pitching staff (Holland, Ogando, Feliz).  Yes, it's a long season and we're just in June.  But, your Texas Rangers have the biggest lead of any division leader in all of MLB going into tonight's ballgame.  Not too shabby.  

All that being said/written...

If I counted correctly the Rangers play the Halos 13 more times before the end of the season and all those games are after the Allstar break.  I would bet the Halos have those dates circled on their calendars.
