Rangers Morning Dish

They’re All Here.  Almost.

It was a packed clubhouse this morning with a ton of media in advance of the pitchers and catchers first workout.  Yu Mania was the hot topic and will continue to be throughout camp.  Mike Maddux will discuss Darvish’s first workout at 1pm Dallas time.   Darvish is scheduled to hold a press conference 3pm Dallas time.  
Most of the players are in Surprise, including Josh Hamilton.   He was in the Rangers clubhouse this morning but did not do any media interviews.  Hamilton will have a press conference on Friday.

Cowboys Smack
Not only is reliever Joe Nathan a four-time all-star,  is a passionate New York Giants fan.   He attended Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis and offered this on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo:  “I just hope his golf game stays good.”

Corpus Christi native Mike Adams is a huge Cowboys fan.  He says that Nathan has given him a fair amount of flak but is optimistic the Cowboys will improve “Hopefully they make some changes this offseason,” the pitcher said. 
Adams is recovering from a sports hernia.  He had surgery January 3rd but says he’s 100% but is a little behind other pitchers.  He’s confident he’ll be ready by April 1st.  He’s thrown off the mound once while other guys have thrown off of it a couple times.

Baby News
Congratulations to first baseman Mitch Moreland.  He and his wife are expecting their first child due in August.  He’s so excited and can’t keep a smile off his face when talking about their new addition.   (I know what he’s having but will let Moreland share the news in due time).

Moreland is recovering from offseason wrist surgery.  He says the wrist is good, it’s coming along great and he hopes to be ready to go by spring training games.
