Monday Morning Rangers Update

Yeah, but now you're in Detroit

I'm running out of things to say. The Rangers have been so good, it's not funny.

T.R. Sullivan's game recap focuses on the series winning victory in Detroit as well as the franchise best 8-1 road trip.

Richard Durrett reacts to the Rangers 3-2 victory with various notes from the game. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that the Rangers went to Detroit and won a four game series against a very good Tigers team.

Gerry Fraley offers his observations on the win which includes a note on Colby Lewis in the midst of an impressive walk-less streak.

Jeff Wilson has quotes from Alberto Gonzalez about the eventual game-winning suicide squeeze bunt that replay showed should have been called a dead ball. Thankfully, MLB believes so staunchly in the human element.

Behind the DMN paywall, Fraley writes about the Rangers "leaving the American League in the rear-view mirror."

Similarly, Durrett has a piece on the Rangers looking more and more like the standard in which other teams must measure themselves against in the American League.

David Schoenfield gets in on the act by basically writing a love letter to this season's Texas Rangers so far.

Behind the DMN paywall, Rick Gosselin writes about the philosophy used by Ron Washington in putting together his lineup.

Jim Reeves shares his thoughts on Pudge Rodriguez--who is in Texas to announce his retirement today--being the best all-around Ranger in franchise history.

Sullivan's has a whole bunch of notes but the most important one is that Adrian Beltre is scheduled to have an MRI today on his hamstring but is already presumed doubtful for the Yankees series.

Finally, Gil Lebreton gets us riled up and ready for our yearly visit from the New York Yankees.
