April 18, 2011: Monday Morning Manager
So we know now that Alexi Ogando is not infallible as a starter. We already knew that the Rangers bullpen is quite fallible.
So the Rangers are back home tied for first place with the Angels at 10-5 and a nice 10-game homestand sitting in front of them. Ervin Santana and C.J. Wilson will start it off on Monday night at the Ballpark in Arlington when the Angels arrive.
Some points to ponder…
1. How concerned are you about the bullpen, especially in the eighth inning?
2. What pitcher should be dropped when Colby Lewis comes back?
3. Is it a coincidence that the Rangers lost four of five without Josh Hamilton in the lineup?
4. What do you make of the struggles of Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus at the top of the lineup?
5. Does Chris Davis need to be sitting on the Rangers bench rather than playing every day at Round Rock?
