OK, so this is mostly just an excuse to post Scott Johnson’s outstanding image here, but… no, actually J.P. Arencibia is still, somehow, news in these parts, and it’s certainly not going unnoticed that the Rangers today announced that he’s been recalled (after long spell in Round Rock, during which he moved out from behind the plate to try his hand at first base — gotta make them Yen!) and will be with the Rangers for this weekend’s series. Geovany Soto has been activated from the DL, meaning J.P. won’t be behind the plate. First baseman Carlos Pena has been D’d FA to make way for our returning hero, his replacement.
Yes, the Rangers are this bad.
