Certain things never get old for me. Thinking about Vernon Wells every single time Mike Napoli does something that resembles anything? Never gets old. In order for Mike Napoli to be on the Rangers, there needed to be someone willing to take on the Vernon Wells contract. That's insane -- who would willingly take on that contract? Yet there Napoli is, doing hitter things for the Rangers whenever he gets the chance.
The other thing that doesn't get old is thinking about the Mark Teixeira trade every time Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz, and Elvis Andrus do anything of note. Without any stats to back me up, it seems like 90% of all superstar-for-prospect swaps are lucky to get just one player of quality back -- the Rangers got three. And it might not stop there, as one of the players the Rangers got from the Red Sox in the Jarrod Saltalamacchia deal had a pretty sweet year in low-A.
Harrison gave up the early home run from Craig, but he's been in command since then, striking out three without allowing a walk.
Lohse has been better at keeping runs off the board, but he hasn't been quite as sharp. He walked Ian Kinsler with one out in the third, for example, losing him on a pair of inside sinkers. But he retired Andrus on a fly ball, and Josh Hamilton on a line drive right to Albert Pujols.
If I had to guess which pitcher will leave the game with fewer runs allowed? Harrison. But which pitcher has allowed fewer runs through three innings? Lohse. Baseball's silly like that.
