And Pineda is out for the $#@!ing year.
Balfour just gave up a solo bomb to Konerko first batter of the 9th to blow their lead.
* The Rangers have been in front in the AL West for the last 15 days of this season, growing the lead from 0.5 to 5.5, the largest of any division leader. But if you go back to June 8, 2010, Texas has held first place for 303 of the 319 days in the regular season.
Happy pushed back 3 days...
Texas Rangers right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz will not make a start this weekend against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Instead, Feliz will be available to pitch after Scott Feldman tonight and would then start Tuesday in Toronto. The move gives the club a chance to get Feliz some additional time off and monitor his innings.
Chalk it up to a learning experience for the Rangers after dealing with Alexi Ogando last season. Ogando was making the transition from reliever to starter -- just like Feliz is this season -- and he pitched every fifth time through the rotation. He was an All-Star starter, but in logging more innings than he had before in his career, he ran out of gas in the second half and ended up as a key bullpen piece in the postseason.
"We can either take the opportunity to do it now or do it on the back end," Washington said. "We didn't really have a plan in for Ogando. But we learned from that."
The decision alters the rotation, putting Yu Darvish on the mound Monday in Toronto. Here's how it lines up:
•Friday: Matt Harrison
•Saturday: Colby Lewis
•Sunday: Derek Holland
•Monday: Yu Darvish
•Tuesday: Neftali Feliz
•Wednesday: Matt Harrison
"I feel good," Feliz said through a translator. "They had the extra day and I think it will help me. It's a long season and I don't know how many innings I'll pitch. It's up to them when I pitch."
Washington said if Feliz doesn't pitch tonight, he will try to get him in a game or two before his Tuesday start just to get some work in. Feliz is making the transition from closer to starter. The most inning he's pitched in a full professional season was 127 1/3 innings in 2008.
Feliz is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA in three starts this season. In 20 innings, he's held opponents to a .171 batting average.
we need to get at least 7 runs tonight so i can order a $#@!load of papa johns for the draft tomorrow.
i watched the game on the YES network yesterday. so refreshing to not hear about pies and cookies and grandma in Weatherford.
i swear to GOD we have the worst most stalest announcers in baseball.
So with them pushing Harrison back an extra day and re-inserting Feliz behind Darvish in the rotation, are we to take it that their concerns about Darvish and Feliz wearing out the bullpen on back-to-back days have been overcome?
I'll also add that, after watching the Pirates this afternoon, their announcers make Grieve and Barnett sound like the Insane Clown Posse.
$#@!. That. Bitch. She doesn't belong in anyone's booth.
I like TAG, too. Just wish he'd cut the cookie $#@! when the bases are juiced in a one-run game. That was bad.
#TeamTAGIsBoring. Liked him with Lewin. Didn't like him with Rhaids. Don't listen to him much with Barnett because it is muted all the time.
Our least favorite lefty is gonna lose to the Rays @ 6 on MLB Network...
Yessir, my bad.
on the surface Hellickson looks like more of a douche than CJ.
Nice AB, Howie.
Maddon don't $#@! around on D.
sox up 4-2. lets increase that division lead tonight.
And Oak scores 3 in bottom 14 for the W.
Oaktown 357 needs to stick with those yellow tops.
(Wire)I got these yellow tops(Wire)
Damn, not sure how that was E-2.
