Misc. of season notes...

I know this isn't Ranger related, but how about my boy Clint Barmes who made a great defensive DP to end the game today against the Cards!  Personal favorite Ryan Ludwick hit a shallow pop/liner (cross between pop up and liner) to RCF that looked like it was going to drop.  Clint made a beautiful catch as he was falling to the ground, did a tumblesault and got up and doubled Albert Pujols off 1B.  Go Rockies!

Ex-RedHawk Thomas Diamond was DFA'd by the Cubbies earlier this week.  He cleared waivers and was outrighted to Iowa.

Team USA won the world cup with a win against Cuba.  Justin Smoak was named the MVP.

 The MFYs added ex-Hawk Freddy Guzman to the 40-man and reinstated ex-Hawk Cody Ransom from the DL.  The Nationals acquired Jamie Burke from the Mariners.

The Rangers signed supplemental first round pick Tanner Scheppers.

 A few updates to the Rangers AFL contingent.  The squad now includes personal favorites Brennan Garr, Marcus Lemon and Mitch Moreland as well as Danny Gutierrez, Evan Reed, and Doug Hogan.  They still need to fill the spot that was to have been taken by Thomas Diamond
