The Rangers will start playing exhibition games very soon!

Are you over the 9th and 10th innings of game 6 of the 2011 World Series?  Are you over the series period?

The Rangers will soon be headed to Arizona trying to put the series behind too.  They need the kind of frame of mind that puts bad things behind as soon as possible because the other AL teams are out to dethrone Texas.

Over the winter, the Rangers lost CJ Wilson and replaced him with Yu Yardish, the Japanese star.  I don't know if Yu will win 15 games but we do know that CJ won 15 and 16 in the last two years.

They are also going to bring Feliz from the closer to a starter role.  I am optimistic about that move because Feliz has great stuff.

Do the Rangers have enough pitching?  I think that they do but it's up to Yardish and Feliz working out in their new positions.

Nathan will do a good job as the new closer.  That was a great pickup.

The lineup is about the same.  The big challenge is keeping all of these guys for a few more years because there is only so much money to go around.

I love this lineup:

Kinsler, 2b
Andrus, SS
Hamilton, LF
Beltre, 3b
Young, DH
Cruz, RF
Napoli, C
Moreland, 1b
Gentry, CF  (Murphy at LF against lefties and Hamilton moves to CF)

How will the Rangers deal with the Angels?  I think that they will do well and repeat as AL West champs.
