And at least today they put some runs on the board. When you're having trouble hitting Padilla, and making Millwood look like he was 10yrs younger, not a good sign offensively.
Pitching in Rangers Ballpark in Arlington against our lineup isn't easy, so chalk that up to the Rangers' bats.
Millwood looked really, really good in the first game, so I wouldn't beat up Cleveland's bats over that one. Padilla looked pretty decent in Game 2, and McCarthy's "slurve" that breaks 12-6 was a wonderful and awesome sight to see today. If it hadn't been for the wind (announcers said gusting up to 33 mph), I doubt he'd have gotten beat up so bad. Same for Pavano, but he didn't look very sharp at all so he'd have still given up quite a few runs. On the other hand, Zack Jackson looked really good his first few innings. Had something like 5 K's through 3 and 1/3rd before starting to give up some hits.
Figured owning V-Mart, DeRosa, and Peralta on various teams would work out well with a great start since the first three games were here. Did get a homer from V-Mart (today), but I was really hoping for more.
3-0 now. Go Rangers!
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
