Found September 15, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
On a day when the bullpen was exceptionally thin, righty Koji Uehara went where no Rangers reliever has gone this season. He went to the mound for a fourth consecutive day. With righties Mike Adams and Joe Nathan unavailable due to fatigue/soreness issues and Alexi Ogando being held back to close out the game, if needed, Uehara gave the Rangers a perfect eighth inning in what was a one-run game at the time. The Rangers scored seven times in the bottom of the eighth on the way to a 9-3 win over Seattle. "We had to push him out there four days in a row, but his pitch count has been real efficient, so we were able to do it," manager Ron Washington said. "He looked very strong tonight. Very strong. "We checked with him earlier," Washington added. "He said he was ready to go. Our plan was to give him the ball when the eighth rolled around. When it did, we gave him the ball and he did an excellent job." No Rangers pitcher had gone ...

Hamilton back in Texas lineup

Slugger Josh Hamilton is back in the Texas Rangers lineup after getting an injection to lubricate his sore left knee. Hamilton, who leads the majors with 41 home runs and 121 RBIs, said before Friday night's game against Seattle that his knee was already feeling ''90 percent better than it did before.'' Hamilton came out late in Wednesday night's game and...

Beltre belongs in discussion for AL MVP

Every year at the Major League Baseball winter meetings, Commissioner Bud Selig addresses the assembled cash providers and architects of the 30 teams and proceeds to roast one. He basically chooses the worst deal of the offseason, and in 2011 he believed that to be the Texas Rangers' signing of Adrian Beltre for five years and 80 million. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels...

Feldman done in 3rd, Rangers’ rally fails

I am generally a fan of roller coasters. Except when they happen in the form of a Rangers game. Scott Feldman continued his streak of terrible starts, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks in just 2.2 innings.  And he threw 71 pitches in that time.  Horrendous.   I’m not about to boo Feldman (like many in RBIA did), but it’s getting REALLY hard to root for him. ...

Texas Rangers: Yu Darvish gets 15th win, 200th strikeout of season

When the Texas Rangers signed Yu Darvish this offseason it was thought he could be a huge piece to the team’s postseason puzzle, especially after the loss of staff ace C.J. Wilson to the Los Angeles Angels. Well, Darvish has been fantastic during his first season in the majors and that continued Friday night. Darvish struck out nine in seven innings as the Rangers beat the Seattle...

Darvish goes over 200Ks as Rangers rookie

Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish has recorded the 200th strikeout of his debut season in the major leagues. Darvish became the first major league rookie to reach that mark since Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out 201 batters for Boston in 2007. After Seattle right fielder Carlos Peguero led off the fifth with a strikeout, Darvish's fourth of the game and 200th of the season...

The Texas Rangers are Living Through the Pain

The Texas Rangers are quietly marching through this 2012 season ignoring every obstacle thrown their way.  They were the healthiest team in baseball until May, then the flood gates opened.  Injury after injury piled up, yet the Rangers carried on.  They have been in first place for most of the year, and they really have not been challenged until recently.  The Oakland...

Roy Oswalt Update: Why Phillies Fans Should Be Grateful He Didn't Re-Sign Here

Roy Oswalt may have signed with a contending team, but he himself hasn't really helped.  The 35 year-old veteran signed a one-year contract worth $5,000,000 with the Texas Rangers in early June. Declining the Phillies' higher-waged offer, Oswalt decided to pitch where he pitched almost his entire career: Texas. So far, Oswalt is 4-6 with a 6.29 ERA (38 earned runs in...
