More Rangers reaction to Cliff Lee news

Give credit for the younger players for staying up late on a busy news night. Just got off the phone with Derek Holland, who was a little stunned by the Cliff Lee decision.

"I thought it was between us and the Yankees," Holland said. "I didn't even know the Phillies were in it."

Now Holland, like everyone else with the Rangers, has to look forward. Holland could figure prominently now in the rotation, which is something he hoped would happen regardless of Lee's decision.

"I know nothing's been given to me," he said. "I still have a job I have to take care of. Even if he was here, there were still spots open to be won. I can't worry about him not being with us. We've still got a great club. We'll be all right."

Not only is Cliff Lee an extraordinary pitcher, Cliff Lee is an extraordinary con artist!

I'm hoping Mr. Holland realizes he needs to figure out what that strike zone thing is if he has plans to pitch in the majors.
