Whereabouts.

Today, Tempe.

Tomorrow, Arlington.

San Antonio Friday, and again on Saturday.

And then Houston Sunday night, when it all begins with the first three of 162, followed by a return to Arlington to host the Angels and Rays.

Where will Leury Garcia and Nick Tepesch be?

Gonna need a place to live.

So might Fearless Joe Ortiz.

(Here’s Esther Grissom’s video of about a minute of that Wash/Profar/Garcia back-fields clinic I wrote about yesterday.)

Where will Julio Borbon be?

With Texas until the fifth starter is needed during the Tampa Bay series, or in another big league uniform?  (The Astros, Diamondbacks, Brewers, Cubs, and Yankees are among those rumored to have interest in the out-of-options outfielder, according to Gerry Fraley [Dallas Morning News].)

Where will Coty Woods and Chris McGuiness be?

The Rangers’ farm system, or the Rockies’ and Indians’?  Trade talks are reportedly underway.

Where will Nolan Ryan be?

Presumably, Tempe today.  Arlington tomorrow.  Certainly San Antonio Friday, and again on Saturday.

And then Houston Sunday night, when it all begins, followed by a return to Arlington to host the Angels and Rays.

But Kirk Bohls (Austin American-Statesman) isn’t so sure, reporting that “[o]ne person very close to Ryan said it was ‘70-30’ that he leaves,” adding that Ryan was “sounding [Sunday] very much like a man close to saying his goodbyes” and citing “rumors that Bud Selig might throw out a lifeline to keep him involved in the game.”

Where will Nolan Ryan be?
