Remember that note I had yesterday that the Rangers, through eight
games, were basically Pablo Ozuna (.219/.273/.375) against opposing relief
Make that Adrian Beltre (.263/.321/.461) through nine.
Couple other quick things:
1. The second 2009 installment of my weekly ranking of the top 20
prospects in the Rangers’ farm system has now been posted on the official
Rangers website, www.texasrangers.com.
Here’s a direct link to the column:
righthander Ryan Tatusko will be a guest on ESPN 1230 AM (“The Sports Monster”)
this morning to discuss the “Back Field Diaries” project he’s doing for the Newberg
Report this season. You can listen to
the interview online any time after 5:30 this afternoon by going to www.espnbakersfield.com.
3. If you’re interested in switching to DirecTV, I got an email last
night indicating that they are now doubling the discount special for new
subscribers. Email me if you want more
4. Who said this after seeing Ian Kinsler do what he did last night?
“It was awesome.
It was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen. I felt like a little kid. I was jumping up and down, screaming at the
top of my lungs. . . . It’s one of those things you don’t see very often. To hit the cycle and go 6-for-6. Six hits is a good week for some guys. At the same time, I’m not surprised because
Kins is one of the best hitters I’ve seen. That’s unbelievable.”
