‘Lotta Briefs — The Road to October

Baseball fans, the All-Star Break is behind us and now begins the race to October.  What Texas Rangers Team will show up for the stretch?   Will it be the team Nolan Ryan breathed new life into and helped orchestrate back to back World Series appearances or will it be the team many fans (myself included) referred to as the Strangers who fade away on the stretch?  Last night, Texas continued their spiral down.    Caught trying to steal, Kinsler was ejected in the first inning for mouthing off to the umpire, Michael Young went 0-4, they left runners in scoring position in five innings and closer Joe Nathan did the unthinkable!  He walked two batters (note:  the last time April 16, 2011) and then gave up a single.  Game over 2-1.  In addition, their West Coast Series last week was struggle.  They limped home with one of their games an ugly shutout by a struggling Seattle team 7-0  and lost the series to the Angels who are now focusing on the division title rather than a wild-card placement.  It’s a critical home stand where Friday they host the red-hot Chicago White Sox three games followed by four games with the Angels!
