Your browser does not support iframes. I’m not sure there was anyone at the Ballpark in Arlington on Monday night who wanted a win more than this guy. This Rangers fan was hooting and hollering to the point where both the people next to them were full of embarrassment during the 9th inning of Texas’ 6-5 win over the Rays. I was trying to figure out if this guy was so emotional that he was crying, but it looks like he was just suffering from a combination of being drunk and overheated (the beads of water on his face were actually just sweat, we think). If the Angels players had half the heart of this freak, maybe they’d be in first. Oh, and we must mention that the Rangers had Carlos Pena perfectly defended with the shift. Elvis Andrus just to the right of second base? Chalk another point up for advanced scouting. H/T Hot Clicks

Rangers can’t finish sweep of Rays

I think the Rangers are allergic to sweeping.  Or maybe they just want to lull the rest of the league into submission.  I don’t know, but I’d like to see more sweeps.  Sweeps are fun. But apparently my boys don’t enjoy them.  Scott Feldman spoiled the one of Minnesota on Sunday, and Matt Harrison did the damage in tonight’s game against the Rays. It really just wasn...
