Dora, meet Neftali. Neftali, Dora.

Yes, two baseball posts in a row, but this one is too cute to resist. The Texas Rangers called up prized pitching prospect Neftali Feliz yesterday, yet another positive move as they try to get their top prospects more work down the stretch. He's the #1 Ranger prospect according to Baseball America, and the 10th best in all of baseball. The Ranger bullpen just got more talented, obviously. It also got more colorful. Here's a picture of Neftali on the field yesterday. Why yes, that is a Dora the Explorer backpack.

Update: Evidently this is a hazing ritual that all Ranger rookie pitchers have to endure. I dunno. I think it's adorable. How can you not like these guys?
