Ugly game for pitchers

Through three innings, we've had more than 140 pitches thrown and 11 runs scored. The highlight so far has to be Chris Davis' opposide-field homer, which put the Rangers up 6-5. As bad as Kason Gabbard has looked, he still has a one-hitter and hasn't allowed an earned run.

C.J. Wilson gets a save after giving up a homer and 3 hits in one inning "worked". Something is wrong with the stat criteria when this kind of "effort" is a save.

His breaking ball is flat and he delivers it with a different motion than his fastball. Major league hitters see that.
Does the Ranger "brain trust" see that. All I ever see Mark Connor do when he goes to the mound is clap his hands. Is that a requirement?

Move Francisco to closer and Wilson pitches only to left hand batters. Gabbard and Benoit to the minor. Hurry!

The definition of insanity:

"Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result".

Rangers, please, C.J. Wilson is NOT a closer. Maybe a set up man against left handed batters. His era now is almost 5.00 and rising.

Try anyone else, anyone. Try me. I pitched pretty well in high school in 1963.
