Just what Yu Wanted, Rangers Win 3-0

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Prince was 0-fer again today. Eventually they're going to need him to start producing.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Yu was great, the bullpen was good. And the offense produced just enough. Heck, Elvis even went yard!

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: I tell you what, with the job Choo has done offensively I haven't found myself once this young season thinking, "man I wish we had Kins."

Oh yeah, one other thing, Yu is now the pitcher to reach 500 K's in the fewest innings pitched in MLB history. Ever. In the history of Major League Baseball. Impressive. Most impressive. 


No good deed goes unpunished, Nick Martinez optioned to AA Frisco

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: All Nick Martinez did was hand the Rangers a chance to win last night and this is how they repay him? And from one start it sure looks like Martinez is a WAY better MLB starting pitcher than Saunders and Scheppers.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Yu is coming back today and they had to make room on the roster for him. And Nick Martinez could use some more time in the minors to fine tune his game.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Plus, given that the injury bug has attached itself to the Rangers like the poltergeist attached itself to Carol Ann, I have a feeling we will see Nick Martinez again this season.
