Interesting times for Texas

The Texas Rangers are on their best roll of the season and, strangely, they are doing it without Mark Teixeira, who has been on the disabled list since June 9.

Teixeira was hitting over .300 with 12 home runs and 41 RBIs when he injured his left quad. Since then the Rangers are 12-9 and are in position to sweep AL West-leading Los Angeles on Thursday.

Teixeira was mentioned as trade bait as the Rangers limped through the first two months of the season. Now, even if Texas keeps Teixeira, manager Ron Washington faces an interesting decision of how to work Tex back in and find a spot for Brad Wilkerson, who has been absolutely blistering the ball during the last week.

It will be interesting to see who has to make the decisions regarding Teixeira -- Washington or general manager Jon Daniels.
