Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: So our cross continent rivals get CJ and Poo-Holes?!?!?

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: As someone just told me, the Halos saddle themselves with kinda Tom Hicks salary in a vain effort to hang on to relevance.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Are we strong up the middle?  Yes, yes it most certainly is.  Josh, Elvis, Ian and Napoli.  Plus, I hope we still have a dude named Gentry that runs like lightening so Josh can move over to left and not kill himself by running into center field walls all over ballparks in America.  And our starting staff is looking like Dutch Oven, Cobra Lewis, Ogando, Matty Harrison and maybe Neftali Feliz?  And we still have Scooter Feldman that was looking strong last postseason?  Yeah, OK I can deal with this.  And didn't we sign a closer recently, albeit coming off an injury?

So What Did I Miss Before Game 6 of WS?

 Back during spring training I got busy with other stuff (work mostly, remember this blog is an altruistic venture) and before I knew it the Rangers were well ahead in the division and a month or so of the season had already gone by.  I convinced myself that I didn't want to jinx the roll the Rangers were on by blogging, whether being critical or not, about them.  So, I sat back and enjoyed the ride and didn't worry about blogging about it, until now I guess.  I saw most of the regular season games and each game of the postseason games.  I even got to go to the ALCS game 6 when the Rangers clinched to go to the their second straight WS.

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Up to game 6 of the WS I thought my "plan" of not blogging and therefore not jinxing the Rangers was working.  2 outs and 2 strikes away for winning the WS.  Twice!  In consecutive innings.  I can barely write, think, talk about it even now.  It was hard to watch.  Still hard to comprehend that they were that close.  I know it's just a game but that hurt.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: 2 WS appearances in a row?!?!?  What a ride.  Please let us ride the roller coaster again next year.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: So close.  I am trying not to get spoiled and remember when Chan Ho Park was the "ace" of the staff and A-Fraud was hitting meaningless homers in 11-3 blowout wins and losses on the way to a meaningless MVP for him while the Rangers finished last in their division.
