This Rangers lineup should look awfully familiar. Carl Pavano is the fifth straight right-hander to oppose the Rangers, and Mitch Moreland, Andres Blanco and Julio Borbon are all starting together for a fourth straight game. Blanco, a switch-hitter, is likely to be the only one of the trio guaranteed to be in the lineup Wednesday and Thursday as the Twins use left-handers.
