I may very well win this game tonight.

But I'm not going against this Rangers offense again. Not even with Scott Feldman on the bump.

Rangers just rake. Even their outs are hit hard.

But I'm not going against this Rangers offense again. Not even with Scott Feldman on the bump.

Rangers just rake. Even their outs are hit hard.



You are loving life if you have the Rangers in a shutout pool. I don't see that offensive juggernaut being blanked.

Kinsler and Hamilton are two of my favorite guys to watch play. Every night, 1 through 9, these guys just come at you. Just a hard hitting aggressive team offensively. That gets production up and down the lineup every night.

This has been a great game. 10-10 heading into the 9th.

Amazing. Violent play at the plate in the 9th. Hunter tries to take out Max Ramirez. Max hangs on to the ball. And went deep to tie the game in the 7th.

Thought nothing of it when we traded Max for Kenny last summer. This kid may very well be the Ranger catcher for the next decade.

I'm developing an affinity for this Ranger team. I'd love to see them go out and add a starter or two.

I concur on Kinsler and Hamilton. They play the game all out...some of the defensive plays Hamilton has made this year have been incredible. Also glad to see that Hamilton seems to be winning his personal battle against demons. Can you imagine his stats if he didn't throw away 7 years of his career?

Ranger gushing aside, gun to my head, Angels are my pick to win it all right now, and I've been pinging em at 10-1 and 9-1 for the last 4-5 weeks when I have good nights.

Lackey, Saunders, Weaver, Escobar ... with Shields, KRod, and this Arredondo kid on the back end. Sick.

Offense has yet to even show up this season. Figgins has been hurt. Vlad has done little. Kendrick, until tonight, has done little. And Torri and Garrett are both 2H players. Love Sciosca as a manager.

I know. Just two years ago, he was the target of Buff's angst every day in the B-List. The original fungus.

Speaking of great games, how about that Arizona & Washington matchup.

Arizona does everything in their power to hand the Nats that one. Down 2-0 in the 9th, an error allows the Nats to tie it up but they can't get the runner on 2nd in with no outs.

Then after giving up 3 in the top half of the tenth, they immediately come back and tie it up 5-5, but can't get Kearns home from 3rd with 1 out.

Amazing how many opportunities they squandered.
