The next week doesn't look pretty... two against SF at home, then a weekend set against the Dodgers in LA, followed by two against the Asterisks in Houston. Off days in between each series. Afternoon game tomorrow as well.

Lyles tonight, Gibson tomorrow.

The Rangers come into this new series with the third worst record in MLB. The hitting is abysmal and apparently even Woody has had his fill of it. The pitching has been good overall, but not exactly great.

Hate to say it but it looks like a 1-6 stretch

Anyone remember the cup of coffee Patrick Wisdom got here. He seems to be pulling an Adolis Garcia.

Evan Grant's take on how those expected to go early in the draft, fared this past week:

RHP Kumar Rocker, Vanderbilt

After a rough outing in the SEC tournament, Rocker dominated Presbyterian for six innings in Vandy’s NCAA Regional opener. He allowed a pair of hits and walks each in seven shutout innings of a 10-0 win. It was Rocker’s first scoreless outing since April 16 at Tennessee. Rocker was the preseason favorite to be the No. 1 pick, but an inconsistent fastball has dropped him in some mock drafts to five or lower.

RHP Jack Leiter, Vanderbilt

Leiter was electric in a 4-3 win over Georgia Tech in the winner’s bracket of the Nashville Regional on Saturday. He struck out 11 and allowed just a run in six innings. Since being skipped once in the rotation for a breather, he’s posted a 2.55 ERA for 24.2 innings while striking out 40 and allowing just 20 baserunners (11 hits, nine walks). “That guy is as good as we’ve seen,” Georgia Tech coach Danny Hall said.

Woodward, media members like Evan, and some fans I have read responding to Evan, are expressing a lot of disappointment with our hitting. The answers to 80% of our lineup problems aren't playing under Woodward right now. There is way more angst than there should be. If this was a building being rebuilt, it would be like folks complaining that the walls that were being knocked down weren't good enough to put back up to be used as walls again.

Most of the answers will have to be found in our drafting, development and free agent signings. I don't understand why so many can't understand that.

The Rangers have a lot of misguided fans.

Already seeing people saying "JD made a mistake by dumping Elvis" with the Davis release and one fan that actually wants to bring Elvis back.

That is a no-no. People get crazy real easy.

Personally I do not think we can use Delino going forward. Nice guy but has been around and has not proven he will be more than what we have seen.

He needs that OPS well north of .800 to make himself worth trading.

Great throw by Joey. Guy was out by a mile.

Wow, the all-time leader at a stadium that has been used a whole year.
