Injuries and replacements are becoming costly

Rookie pitcher Felix Doubront made two costly errors to help lead the Rangers to a blowout 5th inning. Although he was only charged with 2 ERs in 4.2 IP, the visitors went from being on the short end of a 3-2 score to a 7-3 lead by the end of the 5th inning. Each team would score 1 more run in the game.

Although there seems to be great resolve on this team, rookies and replacements can only carry the team so far. From today's box score: Patterson 0/4, .204 BA; Nava 0/3, BA .294; Hall 0/4, BA .240; Cash 0/3, .173; Shealy has yet to record a hit.

Those on the DL can't get here too soon. The Rangers are for real this year and will be trying hard to win this series from the Sox. Let's hope that resolve returns for another game. Let's hope Lackey isn't lacking tomorrow.

We will survive, we will get by. (We are everywhere.)
