Rangers win 2 out of 3 versus Spankees in Jeter's last trip to Arlington

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: If the Rangers's bullpen had anything last night the Rangers would have swept them. Of course last night the bullpen was terrible and wasted a great offensive performance by Arencibia and the Rangers.

And again last night there was an error in the outfield. Sorry, it's on Leonys Martin as the CF to call his fellow outfielders off when he can make the play and too often this year he hasn't been assertive in his role defensively.

Sadly, this is the first series win for the Rangers in over a month. Is that bad?

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Lewis looked good again. And again Feliz closed out a game.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: This weather recently and this summer generally is freaking me out. It was downright pleasant at the ballpark last night and I'd guess is was more of the same weather-wise tonight.

Beltre quietly is having a great year at the plate. Please, please, please don't let me find out that he has been traded.

Even though he's a Spankee, I never heard about Jeter acting like a jerk like a lot of his Spankee peers (see Clemens, ARod, Texeria, for example). Pretty much a class act. End of an era. That said I will be glad when he's not playing against the Rangers anymore.

This is an excellent post. Yes Jeter is indeed class. I am beginning to think that maybe just maybe naftali is back.
