A bunch of Rangers MiLB moves...what a surprise!

--Lots of moves this past week (surprise, surprise!)  Dustin Majewski, who spent 2 days with the RedHawks in Fresno, was sent down to Frisco Friday after Mitch Moreland suffered a broken foot after fouling a ball off of his foot.  Guillermo Moscoso was recalled by the Rangers, as was Willie EyreBeau Vaughan earned a return trip to Frisco while the wild Pedro Strop was promoted to OKC (any clue what I think about this move? LOL).  Jose Vallejo was traded to the Houston Astros as part of the Ivan Rodriguez trade (I'm not calling him Pudge...Carlton Fisk is the only Pudge as far as I am concerned) and Adam Fox was promoted to the RedHawks.  Nelson Cruz has been rehabbing with the Hawks and should be activated some time this week.  It's unclear whether Julio Borbon or a reliever will be sent down to clear a 25-man spot for him.  After garnering 2 hits in his major league debut, Kevin Richardson was DFA'd.  If he clears waivers (which he should) he'll likely rejoin the RedHawks.  And probably the highlight for me, personal favorite Jonathan Greene was promoted to Frisco to replace Adam on their roster.

--After 2 straight losses to the Sky Sox, the Hawks drop to 6 games behind Albuquerque in the division race.  Frisco is 3 games out of the second half south title.

--Make sure you check out Bob's article on personal favorite Royce Huffman.  He also has one on Justin Smoak.
