Home, sweet home. For the Rangers, it has not been a very good road trip coming off of the All-Star break, and it may not get any easier. Roy Oswalt was scratched from his start tonight and Colby Lewis is questionable for tomorrow’s start. I was just going to say that Texas’s biggest addition come the second half will be getting healthy, but it seems like they can’t even get that right.
Josh Hamilton was sort of called out by manager Ron Washington, and we will see if Hamilton’s pride takes a hit and he does finally stop swinging at anything he can get a bat on, and some pitches that he can’t.
