I'm taking the weekend off.
From the blog that is.
The Rangers have been taking some time off from playing winning baseball so I think I'll join them. They've lost 4 in a row. They don't like it when people talk about the usual "August Swoon", but guess what. They are 6-10 this month and don't look they did earlier this year.
I know every team goes through rough stretches during the season. The Rangers rough stretch goes back to the beginning of July. They are 20-23 since then. The only thing saving them is that the Angels and A's haven't been able to put together a really good run. Guess what Rangers. The A's have won 3 straight and that means they've made up 3 games in 3 days. The A's and the Angels now stand 7 games out of first in the division and even though that seems like a big lead, it really isn't. Not when you can't win.
The Rangers have 42 games left. They need to rediscover the win column. Maybe even today.
I'll be back on Monday...hopefully in a better mood.
