It goes from worse to holy crap, that's just not right...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Prince Fielder, you know the guy they traded Kins for, the guy that never ever ever misses a ballgame? Yeah, he's done for the year because of season ending surgery on his neck.

Jurickson Profar, you know the guy who was going to replace Kins at 2B, the guy who is a can't miss prospect? Yeah, he's out for another 2-3 months.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: The Rangers won their first game of the series against Prince's old team/Kins' new team.

Still 2 GB in the wild card standing as of this writing.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: More curse of Kolan (Kins+Nolan)? I just have this picture in my mind of Nolan and Kins sitting in a room like Bill Murray in Caddyshack but instead of woodland creatures made of plastic explosives Nolan and Kins are playing with voodoo dolls of the Rangers, and they're laughing maniacally as they stick pins in the dolls.

The hits just keep coming and coming and coming. And I am speaking metaphorically. Turns out Profar will VERY likely now be out for rest of season. Sickened. Injury after injury after injury after injury after injury after injury after injury.

Jeff, I'm going to get WAY ahead of myself here but, as I pointed out the Rangers are only 2 GB in the wild card standings. If somehow they earn a spot as a wild card team then Wash is manager of the year, right?

Not giving up on Wash. But damn.

Somehow we are winning some games of late. Very odd. Perhaps we can stay in it until helps arrives?
