Jose Bautista says he's not looking to settle the score with Odor this series... the best revenge is playing well.  Which, of course, is something wussies say.

Scouts tell us Matt Bush and Carlos Beltran are important to the Rangers this offseason.  Thanks, scouts!

Adrian Beltre and Carlos Beltran are the best players to never have won a World Series, so cosmic justice dictates a series win.

According to Jose Bautista one run walkoffs are not "pressure games."
