Last Rites

Last night: Boston Red Sox 10, Texas Rangers 0.

The hometown Rangers are now 10 games out of the wildcard playoff spot (when, with a good road trip, they could’ve been 5 out).

The starting pitching Earned Run Average is around 5.80. This would make it one of the ten WORST in the HISTORY of major league baseball.

They gave up 37 runs in the last 3 games. In those games, at various points, they were down 10, 9 & 8 runs.


…Frankie Francisco could’ve held the lead in the 8th inning and the Rangers won that ballgame they lost on Monday 19-17…

…it could’ve made September interesting.

As it turns out, it will be the night that the season fell apart for them.

That sound you heard at 9:44 PM last night was the bell toll for the Texas Rangers 2008 season.
