Some 2007 Rangers trivia

New, comments

Okay, we haven't done trivia in a while...so let's see how well everyone remembers what has happened so far in the 2007 season. Answers will be posted later this afteroon:

  1. How many starting pitchers have the Rangers used this season?
  2. Four Rangers have been intentionally walked this season. Mark Teixeira has been walked the most, obviously -- 8 times so far. Who are the other three Rangers who have been intentionally walked?
  3. What two Rangers are tied for the team lead in sacrifice bunts?
  4. What positional player is leading the team in HBP?
  5. What pitcher is leading the team in innings?
  6. What pitcher is leading the team in starts?
  7. What player is leading the team in triples?
  8. Four Rangers have saves this season. Two are, of course, Eric Gagne and Akinori Otsuka. Who are the other two?
  9. What player is leading the team in doubles?
  10. What two batting orders have the Rangers used more than any other this season (these two have each been used the same number of times this season)?
As always, no Googling, going to Baseball Reference, or doing any other sort of looking up...
