NOT a Pitching Duel, Rangers Win 15-9, Split Series With Halos

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Dempster probably was hoping for a better first outing with his new club, giving up 8 ER's in 4.2 IP.

It was at least 105 degrees at first pitch.  And it was windy, the wind felt like a huge blow dryer was hitting your entire body.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: The bats continue to produce on this second day of August and the Rangers beat up on C.J. Wilson in the process.  Lots of offense but of note are the new additions, Soto and Olt, both of them contributed to the offensive explosion.  David "Charlie" Murphy continues his hot streak going 2-2 off the bench.  Nellie and Kins both went yard for the second straight night.  And...Josh Hamilton had 4 RBI's in the ballgame.  

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Look, if the Rangers put up 7+ runs each game they should be hard to beat.  If Josh is getting right again the timing couldn't be more perfect especially if Napoli, Nellie, Murph and Kins continue to do what they've done recently at the plate.  Let's hope, wait and see.

C.J. Wilson, former Ranger and current Angel, is, to put it nicely, an interesting character off the field, here's some local media types having a little fun at CJ's expense using his own quotes:
