That game sucked and I don’t want to write about so I’ll let this neural network site recap it for you using only the opening line of “The Texas Rangers lost in the finale to the Boston Red Sox”:

The Texas Rangers lost in the finale to the Boston Red Sox. So I’d like to point to the guy who scored the winning run: David Freese.

Freese is an all-pro right fielder for the Los Angeles Angels, and this season, he’s been a key part of their run to the division championship. He’s hitting like a .301 hitter, with 12 HR and 53 RBI.

This year’s version of the Red Sox seems to have lost some of its depth. They acquired Dustin Pedroia last offseason, but he was an All Star caliber defender. Boston needed a left fielder, and Freese seemed ready to help them find one – even though he’s an All-Star caliber outfielder.

Freese has proven that he can hit for average. He’s the best left fielder in baseball, and that shouldn’t be a surprise. He’s been an excellent player for the Houston Astros, and he’s going to need to continue playing in the big leagues. He does appear to have potential for big league success, though, as he is the second best offensive right fielder in baseball this year, behind only the Toronto Blue JaysRussell Martin.

But the best thing about Freese was that he was able to help the Texas Rangers get to six games in the NLDS against the Washington Nationals.

Jesus Christ.

Player of the Game: David Freese, apparently.

Up Next: I think the Rangers are in Cincinnati tomorrow to open up an interleague series so that should be exhausting. Let’s ask the AI anyway just to be sure:

The Rangers open up a series in the West this weekend with a series series against the Cleveland Indians. Today was the last day of baseball before the first inning of the start of the game and today was the last day in the series.

This means the Rangers will face off against the Indians today in an 8 inning contest. Tonight we will see what is the opening night schedule for tonight’s first game.

Good showing, robots.
