    T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that C.J. Wilson will be available as a reliever tonight for the Rangers. The good news is that he threw just 93 pitches in his Game 5 start Wednesday. The bad news is that he threw just 93 pitches in his Game 5 start Wednesday because he lasted only five…

    New York Yankees' first baseman Lance Berkman falls while chasing a foul ball hit by Texas Rangers' Ian Kinsler in the fourth inning during Game 5 of their Major League Baseball ALCS playoff series in New York

    Lance Berkman has had a rough week. First he gashed his left thumb while trying to cut up a credit card, telling reporters “I almost sliced the tip of my thumb off” and “it was gushing blood.” He’s been patching the wound with super-glue in the dugout during games. Then he took a hard fall…

  5. Nelson Cruz “definitely” expects to play in Game 6 tomorrow

    Nelson Cruz

    Nelson Cruz left Wednesday’s game in the fifth inning with a hamstring injury, but told reporters this afternoon that he “definitely” expects to play in Game 6 of the ALCS tomorrow. Hamstring problems are particularly worrisome for Cruz after they caused him to spend three different stints on the disabled list during the season, but…

  7. First guessing: Lance Berkman batting sixth against a lefty?

    lance-berkman-yankees-sad

    I briefly made note of this already in posting the Yankees’ lineup, but it’s worth expanding on. Mark Teixeira’s hamstring injury has forced manager Joe Girardi to make some lineup changes for Game 5 of the ALCS today and he has Lance Berkman playing first base and batting sixth against left-hander C.J. Wilson. Berkman is…

  9. Rangers won’t move slumping Vladimir Guerrero out of the cleanup spot

    Oct 19, 2010, 11:16 AM EST

    Texas Rangers Workout Session

    Vladimir Guerrero is 7-for-32 (.219) with one RBI in eight playoff games after hitting just .278/.322/.426 in the second half, but manager Ron Washington made it very clear that he won’t be moving out of the cleanup spot: That’s the way I ran the lineup all year and it’s going to stay that way. A…

  10. Rangers relying on a shaky Game 4 starter of their own in Tommy Hunter

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    Lost in the various teeth-gnashing over Joe Girardi sticking with A.J. Burnett for tonight is that the Rangers are turning to a less than stellar Game 4 starter of their own in Tommy Hunter. On the surface Hunter’s numbers this season look great, as he went 13-4 with a 3.73 ERA in 23 starts, but…

  13. Disastrous eighth inning dooms Rangers as Yankees steal Game 1 in Texas

    nolan ryan george bush alcs game 1

    Pictures may say a thousand words, but the shot of Nolan Ryan and George Bush after the Rangers’ implosion in the eighth inning of the ALCS opener can probably be boiled down to just one: Yuck. Texas chased CC Sabathia from the game after four innings, got an excellent start from C.J. Wilson, and then…

  15. Rangers acquired Neftali Feliz and Elvis Andrus by trading Mark Teixeira in 2007

    Oct 15, 2010, 11:22 AM EST

    Mark Teixeira rangers

    Surprisingly little has been made of Mark Teixeira facing his old team in the ALCS, perhaps because he had stints with the Braves and Angels in between going from the Rangers to the Yankees. Selected by Texas with the fifth overall pick in the 2001 draft, Teixeira hit .283/.368/.533 with 153 homers and 499 RBIs…

  16. Can Jorge Posada stop the Rangers from running wild?

    jorge posada yankees throwing

    Minnesota attempted zero stolen bases while being swept out of ALDS in three games, but you can be certain that Texas will test New York’s ability to control the running game early and often in the ALCS. Texas swiped 123 bases during the regular season to rank seventh among all MLB teams and second to…
