Offense Manages Only 1 Run. Again.

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: 1 run.  How many ballgames is your team going to win putting up only 1 run?  Answer: not many and not this one.  Feliz walked in the winning run after Frasor loaded the bases in the bottom of 8 and lose 2-1 to KC.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Of course the pitching staff did only allow 2 runs.  That should be enough to win a ballgame.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Rangers dropped out of top two in the Wild Card race with the loss.


This All Seems Awfully Familiar...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: I've been bad about posting but I have been watching. And this will be awfully familiar and awful if at the end of this thing they end up in a one game playoff and lose.  Again.  For the second straight year.  Or worse, the Rangers don't even make the one game play-in game.  That.  Would.  Suck.

And did I hear right that last night was Yu's first win in 7 starts?  And that might have been his worst start all year. 

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Again, there's been lot's of pitching related injuries, no Feliz, no Colby Lewis, Ogando and Pierzynski on the DL, Berkman(Fat Elvis) was a bust, and Nellie got suspended for the last 50 games.  Beltre and Kins were the only things going offensively  If you would have told me all that at the beginning of the season I would have said they'd be 10 games out of the playoffs at this point.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: And really, the playoff-type baseball started at the beginning of September and that was rough.  Let's see how the last few days of September go, hopefully a lot better.
