Go Rangers (At Least For The Next 3 Days)

Okay, Texas Rangers, we get it. You’re the defending American League champs and you proved why over this weekend with a quartet of wins over the Indians.

Now prove it to us a little more. In fact, go Rangers!

No, I have not taken leave of my senses or hopped on a band-wagon. But I will be pulling mightily for Texas during the next three days. For, you see, the Detroit Tigers are playing in the Lone Star State Monday through Wednesday, and it would be more than a little handy if the Rangers could do to the Tigers what they did to us.

And if that happens, and if the Tribe can snap out of their funk and take at least two of three from Minnesota, we could see the Indians with their lead padded nicely before they embark on a brutal road-trip to New York and Detroit.

So go Rangers. Or, to put it another way…the Rangers took our fire away, now let’s hope they can pour some cold water on the Tigers.
