New Texas Rangers General Manager John Hart won't have much time for reunions when the Cleveland Indians reach Arlington. Cleveland is the team Hart transformed from perennial loser to winners of six division titles, and two World Series appearances. The Rangers open their weekend home stand with the Indians on Friday.
Hart has made lots of player changes in his six months in Texas, but the Rangers are still in last place in the American League West. Hart said that it will be nice to see everybody from Cleveland, but at the same time, Hart says that he's "dealing with a hospital ward here" with all the injured players.
The Rangers are without slugger Juan Gonzalez, All-Star catcher Ivan Rodriguez, #1 starter Chan Ho Park, closer Jeff Zimmerman, and setup relievers Jay Powell and Rich Rodriguez. All are on the disabled list.
