Rangers On Verge of Monumental Collapse

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: After leading the division since April 9 they're about to lose the division to the hottest team in baseball, the A's.  April 9 to Oct. 2 your Rangers were alone in first place.  And now they're on the verge of becoming a wildcard team in a win or go home playoff game.  Now don't you really wish the Rangers hadn't blown that save in the first game of the double header against the Angels this past Sunday?

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: They're in the playoffs no matter what.  3 straight years.  Not too shabby.  You just don't want to back your way into the playoffs is all.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Everyone chill out regarding firing Wash.  If you had a lead off batter that gets picked off seemingly every day and bats .250-ish, a slugging center fielder who took July off, a right fielder that hasn't been good offensively all year, a catcher who missed most of the summer, and your pitching "ace" out for the year, you'd be happy to just be in the playoffs and think that the manager did a pretty good job of managing an awful set of circumstances wouldn't you?  Unless I'm missing something, Wash cannot run the bases, hit or pitch for them.
