Follow the jump to hang out.

Yovani Gallardo (6-2, 2.41) is a sexy beast and there should be an official cult dedicated to his greatness. Do I really need to tell you anything else about him? Gallardo hasn't faced any current Rangers.

Colby Lewis (5-4, 3.40) has pitched pretty well this season. He strikes out a good amount of hitters and walks a fair amount as well. His FIP is 4.02. He doesn't give up a ton of HR. When you type his name into google image search this is the first picture that comes up. This is the actual Colby Lewis. He's 30 years old. He's played for a bunch of teams already. Over his career he has been a pretty bad pitcher. He seems really boring. Carlos Gomez is the only player to have at least one PA against Lewis (two, to be exact) and has a 2.000 OPS against him.



Jonathon Lucroy, who has started the last three games and is 24 years old today is on the bench.
