The house is a little too quiet, and sad tonight. My lap will be empty while I watch the game.  Thank you for 14 wonderful years, I will miss you very much my lovely girl -- Marla Hooch

9/21 Post Game Therapy

No need to wait, we all know how this game this season is going to end up.

The more things change...the more the stay the same...especially when you are talking about the Rangers...[deep sigh] --- Marla Hooch

Random, Non-Baseball Post

One my Dickie Thon Fan Club pals posted this link  to the Guerrilla Marching Band in Detroit. (Watch the video too.)

I wish someone in Arlington would start one of these, I'd join in a heartbeat.

And I have no musical ability whatsoever.

Back to the wailing and nashing of teeth over tonight's game -- Marla Hooch (would be drummer)

9/20 Post Game Therapy

Half Empty or Half Full?

Glass Half Full:  Part of me says:  there are 13 games left, if the Rangers win just 4 more games, Oakland can't lose any more than 2 games just to catch the Rangers - that seems like a nearly impossible situation for the A's.

Glass Half Empty:  The Rangers, right now, have the worst record of any of the teams (AL or NL) that are positioned to go into the post season, which means they are the road team.  The Yankess are 41-34 on the road, Tampa Bay 43-31, Minnesota 40-35 meanwhile the Rangers have a 35-40 road record.   Add to that: Texas is 1-3 against sub .500 teams, on the road,  in their own division the past 4 games!

At least Chris Davis had a good night at the plate.

No more magic numbers until it is down to 1 - Marla Hooch

Ron, you should have started doing that in April. -- Marla Hooch
