Vladimir Guerrero was the man of the hour today in the LA media's world. The DFW media listened to what he had to say during a media scrum in the dugout. The answer: Not much.
Oh, and Dick Vitale is here for some reason. He's wearing a red sweater, which prompted one Rangers player to ask (though not to Vitale), "How can he do that? He's a Rays fan." Eddie Guardado, visiting the Rangers today, shouted, "Hey, Dick, watch out for foul balls." Vitale took a foul ball in the stomach at a Tampa Bay game earlier this season.
