Return of Lewis the lone bright spot for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas – Before Monday's Texas game against Seattle got ugly in the sixth inning Colby Lewis was stealing the show. It wasn't just because Lewis was returning to the mound for the first time since the summer of 2012 either.

So long, farewell, goodnight, Prince Fielder. One of the most disappointing starts to the 2014 season has been Mr. Fielder with his .162/.205/.216 line.  To exacerbate things, his offseason move to Texas led to him being hyped heading into drafts and his current owners paying top dollar to roster his .421 OPS.

LISTEN: Red Sox announcer calls player 'chorizo'

So if you thought a new team would change the ways of Prince Fielder you may be mistaken. Yes I know it’s early but Fielder is nonetheless picking up right where he left off with Detroit last year in the ALCS, this time though with his new team in Texas. Last Friday the Rangers got bombed 8-1 on the road by Tampa Bay but have started the season at 3-2 avoiding the weekend sweep...
