Friday morning Rangers news and links

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...the Red Sox lost last night, so the Rangers need just one win against Tampa, or one loss apiece from Boston and Cleveland, to clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

A win on Friday would allow the Rangers to give the regulars Saturday and Sunday off.

Gerry Fraley has five things to know for this weekend.

With Shin-Soo Choo possibly coming back, Evan Grant looks at the options for where to slot him in the lineup.

Stefan Stevenson has a story about the Rangers' run differential this year not matching their winning percentage.

Carlos Gomez, meanwhile, is tired of people talking about all the one run wins.

Jeff Sullivan writes that there's something else about the Rangers' wins this year that makes them a unique, historic outlier.

T.R. Sullivan says that Yu Darvish is the Rangers' "X Factor" in the playoffs.

Rick Gosselin says that Matt Bush is the Rangers' most consistent pitcher.
