After Game 101

By: T.J. Epting

 

After game number 101 of the 2010 baseball season the Rangers have already exceeded every expectation set out by fans, and the office.

The Rangers are currently 59 and 42 , and 7.5 games ahead of the 2nd place Oakland Athletics (51-59) in the A.L. West.

The Rangers know they are in a position to win the A.L. West as they traded for Mariners Left-Hander Cliff Lee on July 10th. Lee for the 2010 season is posting a 2.40 E.R.A. with a 9-4 record.

The Rangers had to make a Roster move early on July 29th, and place All Star 2nd Baseman, Ian Kinsler, on the 15 day D.L. with a strained groin. This will slow down the Rangers but they will no doubt find talent to fill the spot for the time being.

The Rangers batting is 3rd in the A.L. with a .277 Batting Avg, and also have 100 more hits than many of the teams in the M.L.B.

The Pitching staff has no doubt Exceeded Expectations and is 3rd in the American League with a 3.78 E.R.A. With Mike Maddux as a Pitching Coach and Nolan Ryan as the President, the Pitching staff has been outstanding.

Although the 2010 season has 61 more game left, the Texas Rangers find themselves in a great  to win the American League West, and even make a run at the World Series.
