Who the Hell are These Guys???

I know, I know be wary of small sample sizes.  I get it.  But sometimes you can
pick up consistencies before patterns and I've seen 2 things enough to think it won't
change with a larger sample size.

Plate discipline.
I have never seen a Ranger team work pitchers like they have the first 6 games. I
found a preconceived notion that kept coming up every time top of the inning.  I assumed
I could walk away from the TV if they reached an 0-2 count.  The only person I watched
passed a 0-2 count regularly before was Michael Young.  After 3 games, I started staying
in my seat even if I needed to throw a leak.  By FAR FAR FAR the best I've ever seen a Ranger
team collectively work pitchers.  They seem committed as an entire team to this as much as I've
seen any major league team.  I believe this will be worth 10-15 games this year as they
continue past the small sample size through the entire season.  I think most of these wins
will come against 4th or 5th starters.

Quality Pitching
I watched Gabbard pound strikes with junk low in the zone.  I watched Milwood's opposition
at the plate give the look like they just got bested by somebody.  Padilla throw heat and
not melt down after a few misfortunes.  Jennings go after hitters down a few runs and most likely to
get the  L a few innings later.  Benoit/Blue Glove doing what they do. The Electician mopping up
like the janitor at school we all loved that always had a story. 

Guys, this is baseball at its best and the bar just got raised for my expectations this season.
Thanks.
