Evan Grant notes that the Rangers went into the weekend with the worst record in the American League and came out the other side in a playoff spot.
The Rangers were aided all weekend by sloppy play from their visiting rivals and, as T.R. Sullivan notes, nothing exemplifies that more than Jo Adell turning into Jo-se Canseco.
Davison writes about the Nick Solak flyball that became a home run that became an error that will possibly become a Rangers’ appeal.
Grant writes that for someone who hit what should have been a can of corn flyout, Solak was robbed of his first home run of the season.
Sullivan notes that while the Rangers don’t suspect he’s injured, Mike Minor will be given a pitch limit in his next outing.
And, finally, Will Leitch looks at each team’s quarter pole MVP candidate. He names Lynn for Texas and I don’t think that’s likely but, if he keeps pitching the way he has so far, Lynn could bring the Rangers their first ever Cy Young Award. P.S. Hey look, Hanser Alberto!
