Tyson Ross arrived in Arlington, and he shoved.

Carlos Gomez arrived in Arlington, and he raked.

Mike Napoli arrived in Arlington, and he picked.

Dario Alvarez arrived in Arlington, and he was asked to retire Corey Seager, and Corey Seager alone, and if you are well versed in recent Rangers history, you appreciate the meaning of the fact that Dario did what was asked of him.

Cole Hamels arrived in Frisco, and dealt, and Bubba Thompson and Chris Seise and Hans Crouse arrived in Arlington, and got dressed, (and “Heathers 101,” after one more local performance tonight, arrives in Nebraska,) and Joey Gallo’s BP shot has arrived by now, somewhere, probably, and Do It for Durrett Night arrived again, and was properly backdropped by a perfectly solid Rangers win, with the roster that this club envisioned as it was constructed in the winter serving notice that it, at least nearly, is once and for all arriving.

Got all that?
