Ranger Danger ???

Recommended Posts

According to Richard Durrett, the Rangers have reasons why they won't fade ...... but the Athletics just pulled into a first-place tie with them in the A.L. West.

Don't Count on Rangers Collapsing

September will finish differently this season compared to last year for Texas.

Before their 3-game sweep of the Astros, the Rangers had lost 15 out of their previous 20 games .......... and are now on the outside looking in in regard to a playoff spot, as both the D-Rays and the Indians are ahead of them in the standings.

Could this local writer (Richard Durrett) in northeast Texas have been speaking from his heart, and not his head ???

Only a 7-game winning streak and a Rays series loss (2 out of 3 games) to the Blue Jays have allowed the Rangers to make it to a one-game playoff (163rd regular season game) with them, with the winner getting another one-game playoff against the Indians tomorrow.

Last year, the Rangers had a 5-game lead with 9 games to play, and they blew it.

This year, the Rangers went 6-16 over a 26-game stretch to go from having a 2-game lead in their division to needing to win each and every one of their final 7 games just to make the play-in game of the wildcard game ...... which they lost.

The author of the article in the O.P. must feel awful.
