At 9-1, the Rangers have the best record in baseball. They've scored a healthy six runs per game and lead the league with a 2.22 ERA. The latest on the club:
- Assistant GM Thad Levine agreed to an extension that runs through 2015, reports MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan. Levine told ESPN's Richard Durrett he's honored and thankful for the job security. Jon Daniels brought Levine aboard in October of 2005, two weeks after he was hired as GM.
- Durrett has an excerpt from Jayson Stark's upcoming column, in which Stark spoke to Rangers lefty C.J. Wilson. The 30-year-old can be a free agent after the season. "The winning thing is more important than anything else," Wilson told Stark. Wilson agrees with Roy Halladay that free agency is more about picking where you play than about making the most money. The Rangers made an offer to Wilson in March, which you can read about here.
