Where are your big words now, Beane?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the good news is that the Rangers showed Oakland how it feels to get beat by people no one has ever heard of.  The bad news... Apparently we're under the influence of a voodoo curse.

Jeff Wilson's recap focuses on a win on the shoulders of some unlikely heroes.

T.R. Sullivan also has a recap, where you can revel in victory and shrivel at continued injuries.

Evan Grant also takes a look at the game.

Eric Gilmore has a rapid reaction, with nearly all of the bullet points being something upsetting.

On the injury front, Pedro Figueroa threw one pitch before falling victim to the gypsy curse, whereas Kevin Kouzmanoff was able to last almost halfway through the game.

Shin-Soo Choo does not appear to have a high ankle sprain and so will not be going on the DL (yet).

T.R. Sullivan's notes column tells us that Harrison is ready to return to the rotation Friday, Choo not heading to the DL yet, and Michael Choice batting leadoff against his former team.

Evan Grant tells us that Robinson Chirinos appears to have swiped the starting catcher job from J.P. Arencibia because Arencibia is terrible.

Grant also looks at Monday's minor league action, with Luke Jackson, Alfaro, Gallo and Guzman all having nice nights.

Finally, a newsreel archive company has uploaded their entire collection to YouTube, which is freaking awesome.
