• The Rays are set to begin another road trip. The Ray have lost 32 of their last 36 on the road since the 2006 all-star break. In fact, last year they recorded the third fewest wins on the road since the inception of the 162-game schedule. If the Rays have any hope of being a competitive team in 2007, they need to learn how to compete in other ballparks.
  • The Rangers are 2-4 and 2.5 games back of the first place Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim near Disney Land.
  • Edwin Jackson will be making his first start of the season. It will be his first start in almost two weeks. However, he did work a simulated game last Thursday to get some work in.
  • Jamey Wright made the rotation for the Rangers as a non-roster invitee in Spring Training and will make his first start tomorrow night.
  • Robinson Tejeda is coming off a great start in which he tossed 7 shutout innings against the Red Sox in their home opener on Friday.

    Why are Ruddy Lugo and Shawn Camp not getting death threats

    They are honestly the worst pitchers I’ve ever seen and I can’t believe that they get a free-ride with the media and Maddon

    Hey … take a look at Durham! Talbot, Sonnastine, Hammel and Niemann are off to blazing starts. Well, it’s just one start each but still. The pitching calvary is on the way to save the day!
