Before the season, when everyone went ga-ga over the Prince Fielder signing,
I wondered how people forgot about the Texas Rangers.
Remember last years's ALCS?
I think the current edition of the Texas Rangers is reminiscent of the Atlanta Braves of the 1990's - they'll get their World Series Championship...
The Rangers have the complete package for success...
That having been said, good pitching always beats good hitting - and Justin Verlander proved that on Saturday night against the Rangers.
After defeating Detroit by scores of 10-3 on Thursday and 10-4 on Satuday afternoon, Verlander, finally, stopped the bleeding.
JV pitched a solid 6 innings, allowing 4 hits, 1 run, 3 walks and 8 Ks.
Verlander left the mound with a 3-1 lead.
Octavio Dotel, Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde came out of the bullpen to preserve a 3-2 win.
Today: Drew Smyly vs Colby Lewis at 1:10 PM.
