My bad.

My bad, times two:

1. I wrote three days ago that Julio Borbon would probably go back to AAA once Nelson Cruz was ready to return to the active roster. Umm, no.

2. I am terrible at watching Jason Jennings pitch. Not since 2007 Jamey Wright have I had a more difficult time watching a Rangers pitcher than I've had watching Jennings the last three months. I get that he's a warrior, but I can't do it any more. The oversimplified book: lay off the breaking ball diving out of the zone, make him throw strikes, and crush those. Good grief, Jason Grilli, get your rehab work in at Frisco and come back. Jennings can't be given the ball in close games.

There are two players on this roster I just can't watch any more, and I can't even bring myself to mention the second one.

Every contending team in baseball is going to lose a bunch of games over the next six weeks, and tonight's was just one of those for Texas.

But that's a really, really tough loss.
