To paraphrase T.S. Eliot, this is the way the Rangers season ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.
And make no mistake, after getting swept at home by the A's in the most critical series of the season, getting outscored 19-1 while being shut down by Trevor Cahill, Edgar Gonzalez, and Brett Tomko, this season is done.
And the season has ended with a whimper.
The past few days have looked like a team that has given up.
