    Young had a two-out run-scoring double in the third, but beyond that Narveson got out of jams with good pitches and double plays, and was helped by catcher Jonathan Lucroy throwing out Julio Borbon trying to steal third.

    Lucroy threw out a base stealer Thursday and it would have been two had second baseman Rickie Weeks not dropped a throw. Macha praised Lucroy's performance and ability to call a game and handle the staff, saying he's the "hardest-working guy in the clubhouse" since he's arrived from Class AAA Nashville, showing up early each day to study hitters and his own pitchers.
    Two starts in a row for Jon. I detect a trend beginning to take shape.

    First game of his career without a hit I believe and it sounded like he accelled on the defensive side.

    He better start tomorrow, it's his birthday.

    He's penciled in to start his third game in a row. Direct TV 658 & & 733HD (MLB Ticket) I detect a trend.......

    I have mlb.tv but it's blacked out and it's not on tv. The blackout rules are so stupid.

    A base hit that may have been an error, sounds like the 1st baseman could have had a play on it. Then he stole 2nd. 1-1 with a SB.

    The blackout rules are dumb. You're in the Rangers MLB-AL territory. I guess they expect you to hop a plane to Milwaukee to see them play.

    The Rangers catcher Matt Treanor was cut by the Brewers in spring training. It is looking and sounding like Jon is now the Brewers no.1 catcher. He has thrown out several runners and is batting over .300. The other catcher Kottaras has thrown out no one.

    Treanor is filling in while Saltalamacchia gets right in the minors. Max Ramirez is filling in for Treanor from time-to-time. But I'm not sure Salty will jump right back in once he is ready to go. Treanor delivered a pinch-hit, 2-out, 2-run triple in the top of the ninth with runners on first and third to put the Rangers up 3-2 and ultimately a win. Treanor has been playing well.

    Just an FYI....Brew Crew will be in Houston on July 30, 31, and August 1 for a 3 game weekend series. Brew Crew also goes back in September for a 3 game mid week series. Be great to see Cajun fans, especially the Houston area Cajun fans, to show their support for Lucroy.

    Salty was going to be the next big thing when ATL drafted him, until Brian McCann came along. He has an MLB frame. Not sure why he can't put it together. He might be one of those guys who just looks good getting off the bus.

    Salty played well enough for the Rangers last year, but saw limited playing time because Pudge was there. He was to be the starter this year and actually got a walk-off hit the first game of this year, but he only played one more game and got sent to the DL.

    He was feeling fine and doing well in AAA, but for whatever reason, couldn't throw the ball back to the pitcher between pitches (similar to the catcher in the movie Major League 2). Apparently, he was throwing it all over the place - bouncing it before the mound, airmailing it to center field, throwing it to the 2nd baseman, etc. It is my understanding that he got past that, which was obvious mental, but they aren't ready to move him back up because they are happy with Treanor and Ramirez.

    Taylor Teagarden got significant playing time last year and was set to be the starter when Saltalamacchia went down, but he has 1 hit in 27 AB, for a 0.37 average this year. So I don't think he will be in the mix too much this year.

    Can you tell I'm a Rangers fan?

    Dad, believe it or not, I had heard he was having trouble throwing the ball back to the pitcher. They sent him down to get that worked out. Hard to believe at that level but it seems to be a mental thing with him.

    Chuck Knoblauch, a Yankee 2B got the throwing yips so bad he was sent to the outfield before losing his job. It cost him his career.

    Yep, that was another one. The throw from the catcher to the pitcher and the throw from second to first seem to be so simple......Until you have that little guy on your shoulder, and every time you draw back to throw it he screams: DONT!
