Question of the Day
The AL championship trophy. And “The Best of Soul Train,” a boxed set of DVDs.
“Thank (team broadcaster) Eric Nadel for the Soul Train tapes, and thank the players in that clubhouse for the trophy,” Washington said.

CEREMONIAL LINEUP: The Texas Rangers have announced a pitching rotation featuring Dirk Nowitzki, former President George W. Bush, Nolan Ryan, Roger Staubach and former Rangers left-hander Kenny Rogers.
