These days, the Rangers and Athletics are doing battle over not only the AL West flag, but also the sovereign rights to infielder Adam Rosales. Here, for instance, is what has befallen poor Mr. Rosales over the past several days ...

Aug. 2: Selected off waivers by the Rangers from the A's.
Aug. 8: Selected off waivers by the A's from the Rangers.
Aug. 12: Selected off waivers by the Rangers from the A's.

All this for a 30-year-old utility man with a career slash line of .220/.289/.333.

While you're busy leaving Britney alone, by all means please do take a moment to leave Adam Rosales alone, too. Talking to you, Jon Daniels and Billy Beane.
