Feldman In A Precarious Position

Ian Kinsler was 1-6 with 1 HR (his 5th), 3 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Tigers.

Kevin Youkilis was 0-3 with 1 BB against the A's.

Danny Valencia was 0-4 with 1 BB against the Indians.

Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the Pirates.

Ike Davis was 0-4 against the Diamondbacks.

Craig Breslow pitched 1 scoreless inning on 2 Ks against the Red Sox.

Scott Feldman received a no decision. He went 5 innings and gave up 5 runs on 7 hits, 2 BBs, and 1 K against the Tigers.

With his rotation spot in jeopardy, this wasn't the start Feldman needed. The Rangers have already demonstrated they're going for it all this year, and I doubt they'll hesitate to replace Feldman with Rich Harden or Derek Holland (both will be coming off the DL soon) if they feel either pitcher is an upgrade.

Feldman has been a sad thing for me. I keep rooting and he keeps throwing up stinkers.

Good day for Breslow though.
