Hitting the road.

Well, the Rangers take their six game winning streak on the road. Today's a travel day and tomorrow it's time to play the Orioles in Baltimore. The O's are doing well to this point in the season with a 4-1 record going into play today against the Tigers. Could be quite the challenge to continue the winning streak.

In order to try and conjure up some winning vibes I am posting this signed 1986 Donruss card of all-time Rangers win leader Charlie Hough. Charlie signed this card for me back in the 1990's when he was still with Texas and adding to his win total.

It's pretty early in the season but already there are some questions being asked about the Rangers and other ball clubs, these among them:

Should Alexi Ogando stay in the rotation or be moved back to the bullpen when Tommy Hunter comes back? Should that decision even be discussed after just one start?

What's the deal with the Red Sox? After getting swept by Texas they went to Cleveland and lost three there to run to 0-6 on the season. Now it's back home to face the Yankees. Will they be able to get it together anytime soon?

Tampa Bay is the only other team in the Majors to not have a win yet. Is that surprising or expected?

What's with the emergency appendectomies? There's already been one for each league.

Any thoughts on these questions or anything else you have noticed with the Rangers or any other team? Please feel free to let me know with a comment.
