Errors and lack of offense doom Rangers in loss to Seaman

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Errors kill.  Errors give the other ball club extra outs and the Mariners made the Rangers pay.  3 errors way are too much for this incarnation of the Rangers to overcome.

Question:  And how many games are you going to win when you score 1 run on 7 hits?
Answer:    Not many, including this game.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: If I would have told you Colby Lewis would go 5+ IP in his first start with 3 ER's and no BB's you'd have been happy right?  Well that's what he did.  Not too bad.  And the whole pitching staff had only had 4 ER's.

Wash got thrown out, good to see he still cares, even if he got thrown out after a replay decided Arencibia committed and error on a force play at home on the transfer of the ball from his mitt to throwing hand.

Prince had a 2 bagger along with a single so there's that.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: To answer Raw Athleticism's questions in comments re Prince, it is neither too early or too late to worry about Prince's offense.  Any time is the right time to worry about his offense.  Of course tonight he went 2-4, so all he needs to do is keep up going 1-3 or 2-4 in every game the rest of the way to maybe bat .250-.275 by the end of the season.
