Chris Young will not start for the Rangers on Sunday.
Due to the Rangers designating Astacio for assignment (
YES YES YES!!!!
), callup C. J. Wilson will be starting for the Rangers on Sunday and Young will be pushed back one day to Monday against the Angels.
Makes sense to give the lefthanded kid the ball against the Nationals rather than the Angles and with the way Young has pitched, I'd rather have him against the Angels than Wilson. Good call by Ranger's management here I think.
Wilson hasn't been spectacular though. Had Tommy John surgery in '03, so missed the '04 season and hasn't been that good this year so far. Not real sure why he's getting the ball instead of Benoit or someone else, but that's the choice the Rangers have made. It will be his first major league start, so here's hoping the Ranger bats stay hot. I've got a feeling we just might need it. Then again, I'm sure Loaiza will be serving up some gopher balls for us.
Oh, and I'll be at the game with good seats, so I'll report what I think about Wilson at some point Sunday evening.
Hope everyone has a chance to see this.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
