    The Texas Rangers announced their 2011 World Series roster Wednesday morning for the best-of-seven series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Thankfully, the club has yanked right-handed pitchers Yoshinori Tateyama and Koji Uehara out of the bullpen for the series and replaced them with RHP Mark Lowe and catcher Matt Treanor.

    That "thankfully" above may be a bit harsh for Tateyama, but not Uehara who gave up two hits, three runs and a home run in the Divisional Series, without getting an out; and three hits and two home runs in the Championship Series in 1.1 innings of work.  In the postseason, Uehara has a 33.75 ERA.  Oof.

    Tateyama got 2/3 of an inning's worth of work in the LCS and gave up one hit.

    Treanor had been cut from the LCS roster, but was on the DS roster.  The Rangers said this is the second straight year that Lowe has been added to the World Series roster after not being on either the DS or LCS roster.
