1-Nil Belongs on Soccer Pitch, Not Inside Rangers Ballpark in Arlington

   Flo from Progressive's sex appeal.
   Sympathy for the Texas Longhorns.
   The Cowboys' playoff success this millennium.
   Scoring in tonight's U.S.-Mexico soccer match.
   The girl to the right's bikini.
   Oklahoma State's credibility.
   Yeah, the Rangers' offensive support for Yu Darvish is that small. They're so inept with their ace on the mound these days you'd think RISP was a four-letter obscenity.
   Darvish bounced back from one of his worst starts as a Ranger, holding the Pittsburgh Pirates to one run Monday night before leaving with cramps in his leg after six innings and 81 pitches. But yet again, one run was one too many as the offense managed only three singles in a painful 1-0 loss.
   As the Rangers now face their largest division deficit (two games) since Aug. 5 and the Oakland A's' Magic Number dwindles to 20, this has deteriorated from a statistical oddity into an alarming trend. The Rangers have lost the last five starts by Darvish. In those games they've produced run totals of 3, 2, 2, 4 and 0.
   Darvish's  last win? Aug. 12 against the Houston Astros. Score: 2-1.

  1. The Rangers are and have been lacking consistent production from the leadoff spot, which in turn has forced Wash to shuffle the top of the order all season.

  2. This season is ending with a ton of bad omens. Consider that we gave up more prospects for Matt Garza than he has wins. Before he got here he was 6-1 with a 3.17 ERA and 5-0 with 1.24 ERA in six starts prior to the trade. Think he resigns here? No chance!

  3. Love reading your articles/opinions/rants etc. Sad to say Rangers are done for 2013.
