The Texas Rangers guaranteed half a billion dollars this off-season to a pair of middle infielders who are hitting a combined .209 through May 19th. Sure, it's early, but we guess someone in Arlington - maybe the guy that promoted the contracts - is more than a little nervous about this. Also this week, Jake Odorizzi's injury, a look at the Austin City Limits Festival headliners. And finally, we propose a way Houston's Jim Crane and the Yankees' Brian Cashman can settle their war of words once and for all -- a cage match!
