Packing, the DL, and future posts.

Well, it's been a whirlwind since my last post. Getting the packing process started, meeting with the realtor and getting the house on the market, breaking the news to friends and co-workers. Dealing with the kids' reactions. Made for a long few days.

The Rangers have had a long week as well. They keep winning, so I hear. The west coast trip and getting ready to move have mysteriously eaten into my game time. The continued winning is good.

Yu Darvish and Matt Harrison's recent performances have also been good. Hopefully Roy Oswalt's Texas debut tomorrow night will be good as well.

What's not so good is the Disabled List. Josh Hamilton narrowly avoided it after being hospitalized with a virus. Mitch Moreland, shown here on card number 234 of the 2011 Topps Heritage set, is looking like he will be on it in the next day or two. Mitch pulled a hamstring in the game against San Diego last yesterday and is probably headed to the DL tomorrow. The injuries are hammering the Rangers right now. If they can hold on through them they should be that much tougher come the end of the season.

Back to the packing up. Right now all of my non-Rangers and most of my Rangers cards are packed. Not sure when they will see the light of day again - depends on the housing situation. I will be trying to keep some out though so I can use them for the occasional post. At least the Topps binder will stay out so I can continue to work through the teams. Could lead to some disjointed post topics as I can't get to some cards that I would like to post. I appreciate your understanding as I try and navigate my way through this move.
