I have to admit, a couple of innings into yesterday's game, I was thinking, no need to be greedy...a 10 game winning streak is great, it has to come to an end eventually, no need to be disappointed about this, the Rangers and still playing great.
And then that happened.
Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers have now added "walk off" to the type of wins they've had in their streak.
T.R. Sullivan's game story has quotes from some of the players about how the team battled back and never quits.
Before you get too excited, though, Randy Galloway has a column where he says the Rangers need to make a trade to win the West, but they can't because the bankruptcy judge is delaying things, and besides the Rangers farm system isn't that good anyway, and so everything sucks and we should just count the days until training camp opens.
Sullivan's notes include talk about Michael Young's team record for triples, and the starter for Tuesday still being up in the air, with Ron Washington saying he'd prefer to have a lefty go, rather than Dustin Nippert.
The S-T's notes discuss the starter situation, Josh Hamilton getting back in the lineup, and Jon Daniels' new highlights, among other things.
Alexi Ogando is only the third pitcher since 1900 to get wins in each of his first three major league appearances, with all three coming out of the bullpen.
Of course, on the bankruptcy front, the news came down yesterday that Judge Lynn had ordered everyone to mediation and had delayed the confirmation hearing for a couple of weeks. Evan Grant says that Chuck Greenberg is bent out of shape about that, because of the impact on the team's ability to make moves before the trade deadline, and is filing a motion to reconsider.
T.R. Sullivan has some bloggy thoughts on the bankruptcy proceedings and the Rangers success this year.
