Josh Hamilton is really awesome. Watching him flag down a couple of balls out there -- balls that would have been extra base hits at any other point in the 21st century for the Rangers -- was amazing. If he doesn't make those plays, the home run in the 9th might have been irrelevant.
Vicente Padilla was solid. Have to feel good about that.
C.J. got the job done.
And someone needs to tell our friend the Cuban Banned Blogger that the Mariners aren't the favorite in the A.L. West.
Rangers are in first place.
