Rangers announce rotation

Tommy Hunter And we've got our rotations set for the World Series, as Rangers manager Ron Washington met with the media at the team hotel on Monday.

Game 1: Tim Linecum vs. Cliff Lee
Game 2: Matt Cain vs. C.J. Wilson
Game 3: Jonathan Sanchez vs. Colby Lewis
Game 4: Madison Bumgarner vs. Tommy Hunter (pictured)

However, Washington said the rotation could change, meaning Hunter's slot isn't secure if things aren't going Texas' way when Game 4 rolls around.

In other notes (thanks to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram ):

• The team's bullpen hasn't been set, and the team is considering leaving a left-hander off the roster and adding a right-hander, possibly Dustin Nippert or Mark Lowe. The team added extra left-handers to face the Phillies' heavily left-handed lineup.

Vladimir Guerrero will start in Game 1 in right field, and could also start the second game. David Murphy would start if Guerrero sits.
