The Paper Trail of June 10

by John Perrotto

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes that Josh Hamilton's hot bat set the pace as the Rangers beat the Mariners. The Star-Telegram's Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers reached deals with their top two draft picks.

Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times writes that Ian Snell's job is in doubt after his loss to the Rangers.
