Week 23: Living at .500

Continuing to tread water...

Season record: 71-71

Week 23 Record: 3-3

Series Record: 20-20, 6 splits

After finally getting up two games above .500 for the first time since late May, the Texas Rangers closed out the week sitting in the place they’re most familiar with this season, at .500. They also went .500 for the week and they’re now .500 in their series records.

It doesn’t help that there seems to be a new injury to a different starter each day.

Adrian Beltre is still out.

Carlos Gomez sprained his ankle.

Rougned Odor sprained his ankle.

Nomar Mazara is dealing with a quad issue.

We could say 90% of the bullpen is just one big injury.

Well at least we got Matt Bush back.

And hopefully Keone Kela next week.

Also Elvis has 20 homers so let’s focus on that ok? Or that Martin Perez has seven straight wins? Or that Andrew Cashner has a 3.19 ERA, fifth in the AL?

And Robinson Chirinos is keeping his on-base streak alive, now at 24 games, the second longest by a catcher in MLB this season.

From here on out, it’s all division series so let’s hope they play better than they did in the last two games against the Yankees. Let’s also hope Rangers don’t continue dropping one by one.

Because you can’t be sad if Beltre is happy
Number 20
