It remains unclear whether Texas will support Big 12 expansion. But one Texas mega-booster apparently is. San Antonio billionaire Red McCombs told ESPN radio in San Antonio that he is in favor of the Big 12 expanding back to 12 teams, provided one of those teams is Houston. "I think we need to add two teams to the Big 12 and should have done it two years ago. The first one should be the University of Houston then it would be your choice of several others." The Big 12 presidents and athletic directors are scheduled to convene in Irving, Texas, next week to discuss, among other topics, expansion.

Tough day for the Rangers as they placed outfielders Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Stubbs on the DL and announced Josh Hamilton will miss the entire season after another knee surgery. This opens the door for Joey Gallo, who should log time in left field after hitting .265/.415/.639 at Triple-A. Importantly, he's cut down on his K's and should be more ready than last season.
