Sorry Tommy Hunter, Rangers Pound O's 12-3

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: I got nothing.  Yes, Holland gave up 3 ER's but, that's not too bad against a team fighting for a wild card spot.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Beltre (with three homers, and his head touched in the dugout more than a few times, much to his supposed chagrin)! And the rest of the offense including a grand salami by Mitch Moreland.  And to point it out AGAIN, Murph had another multi-hit game.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: No one's talking about the Rangers winning the World Series.  All the talk is about Yankees.  Good.

There was a balk called in the top of 8th against Lowe.  While on the rubber Lowe started to bring his throwing hand back towards his glove to get set in the stretch and then stopped it.  Balk.  Very minor, but yeah, it was a balk.  Don't hear about balks called very often anymore, only reason I mention it.

Rangers win another series.  How far back are the vaunted Halos?  But, watch out for the scrappy A's.

With Colon suspension, it will hurt A's chances to catch us. If we play 500 ball, only , here on out - A's have to win close to 66%+ of their games - not likely.
