Texas is now 6.5 games back of the A's.
To put this in perspective, they were 7 games back going into last Friday, before the A's got swept in the doubleheader against the Royals.
I just can't get excited about this. This isn't a pennant race. This is a team hanging just close enough to give Rangers fans false hope.
I'm not going to let myself get sucked in. If they cut the lead to 3 games, I'll get fired up.
But until then, I'm thinking about 2007.
