    No, not at all. They failed once again to capture the AL West flag, and that is what matters to most of the Ranger fans I know. Anything else is a failure.

    Anna - First off, I am real excited to see the A's win again! Congratulations on the second AL West pennant, and great job by the team last night in beating the Tigers! I really want to see the A's get that elusive 10th World Series title!

    Ron Washington was even asking reporters if they could tell him how to win a game.

    Washington said it should feel like a playoff atmosphere with 15 games left, but said: "Right now, we're trying to win a ballgame. I’m not thinking about no playoffs, I’m not thinking about any [playoff race], I just want to win a ballgame. Can you help me?

    The A's didn't hit much as long as Ron Washington was their batting coach. I really don't know how much influence managers and coaches have over team performance.

    Bad luck or a manager's failure to do trouble shooting could be factors when a team slides.

    So is getting swept by Pittsburgh your way of getting back at the Cardinals for 2011? .

    But seriously? Not one game at home?

    Ian "Captain Uppercut" "E4" "La-La Land" Kinsler must go! Jeff Baker who has quit, has got to go! Robbie Ross must go! Dave Magadan must go! If he is not fired, then I will get a group together with pitchforks n lighted torches n Billy clubs and make him leave town! Alexis Rios don't bother sticking around either! Matt Garza = Ryan Dempster = Dennis "Oil Can " Boyd!

    I just can't believe that The Rangers are collapsing for the 2nd straight September....

    It may be time for a new voice in the Dugout....

    Damn. Lance is on the DL and Manny is in AAA. Please say this isn't happening...

    Martin Perez pitched a beauty last night vs the Reds. Shut them down in 6+. Good to see him doing well. He got knocked around a bit before, but he has been awesome down here in Round Rock. Now if we can find a way to get Joey Butler up there in a corner OF spot...

    They could finally bring up Joey Butler, a damn fine fielder and hitter with some pop down here in AAA Round Rock. Bats in the heart of the order down here, and has for a couple years, and was an All Star in the PCL last season. Not on the 40 man roster though, but the Rangers have had a ton of OFers recently.

    Sounds about right, still though, I'd like to see a big breakout year from Cruz. I'd also like to see Lance Berkman get going with some more power. I really expected more pop from him here at the Ball Park. There is still plenty of season left, so hopefully he gets it going to.

    Rangers are looking better, our biggest problem is giving up the long ball. I agree about the starters needing to get to some later innings, if you use up the bullpen it will kill us.

Damn fine team, if only the starters could start racking up more innings and Ws to take some of the load off the excellent 'pen, we don't need to burn those guys out before the playoffs this year! Joe Nathan has 26 SV already, and could be heading for 50-55 for the season! Keep it rollin' Rangers! Stay healthy guys! Lets get back to the Series!
