Rangers, Elvis imploded in 7th, lost the game and series. Season over.

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Elvis had 2 errors in the bottom of the 7th. The Rangers had 3 total errors in the inning. Little league teams don't have that many errors in most innings. If a team has 3 errors and gives up the lead in the process that team deserves to lose.

Prince (3 hits in the series) continued his post season struggles all series long.

Questions for Banister:
If you're going to pull Hamels why not put in Gallardo, who has dominated the Blue Jays all year?
And Moreland (0 fer) didn't do anything at the plate. So why not see more of Napoli?

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Odor, DeShields, Choo, Gallardo and Hamels played well in the series.

We didn't expect the Rangers to even be in the postseason so this was a bonus, I guess.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: And the Rangers did in this series what few teams before them have done: blow a 2-0 lead in a best of 5 series.

What a way to blow/lose a series.

Elvis should offer to give back part of his salary. And Elvis should call Nelson Cruz to see how he dealt with costing the team a series win.

And I will add (even if the author disagrees), Gallardo should have pitched Game 4 - yes, on 4 days rest. Technically 4.3 days rest. He could have started at least. At the point he was not used, then he was the ONLY CHOICE (echo'ing the Author) to put in after Hamels.

One more thing, MLB CAN SUCK IT - with 4 of the 5 games being in the afternoon. Rangers likely played 4 afternoon games all season - completely ridiculous. One more thing - Holland does not need to be here either.
