SURPRISE, Ariz. — No one wants to hear about the Rangers Today travel woes Wednesday night, and it has become a pet peeve of mine when people take to their platforms to bash an airline for a flight delay or cancelation.

That’s easy to say with the status I have, but it still rubs me the wrong way.

So, thanks goes out to American Airlines for getting me and John Moore safely to spring training. The good news is that the emergency exit door that was giving them trouble was on the other side of the aisle than me and no one was sucked out of the plane en route.

Now that we’re here, albeit sleep-deprived, it’s time to work. As Wade Garrett said, “I’ll get all the sleep I need when I’m dead.”

First up was a chilly, wet Thursday at Surprise Stadium. Here’s the Surprise Five:

    I wonderi what happened to Matt Bush. As gor Sborz, I hate how he is guaranteed a spot just because of what he did in the postseason and not based on what can reasonably be expected out of the highly inconsistent guy. He is coming off a 5.50 ERA season and a 6.45 ERA season before, with a 1.3 WHIP those 2 years. His stuff hasn’t translated to results, and a 3.84 FIP over that time isn’t too good, either. I’d want to see him dominate before telling him he has a job no matter what. Burke, Tinoco, and Pruitt have all demonstrated superior stats to his so far in MLB.
