Title got your attention? 

Well, if the title got your attention, the hot hitting and hot pitching Texas Rangers will keep it. 

The Rangers have scored 100 runs in 2012 and have only given up 49 runs year to date for an astonishing +51 run differential.

It is only April 24th.

The Texas offense is led by former MVP Josh Hamilton, who is hitting .400 with 8 HR's and 19 RBI's in the young season.  Word on the street is Hamilton is also hitting in day games, which is contrary to the excuse his blue eyes make it more difficult for him to hit during day games.   I tend to agree  - hitting a baseball in the daytime with blue eyes is difficult and was probably the most influential impediment to my aspirations of becoming a major league baseball player.    

The 14-4 Texas Rangers are seeking to their 3rd straight World Series appearance in 2012 after finishing runner up the last two seasons to the St. Louis Cardinals (2011)  and San Francisco Giants (2010).  

Now, if Japanese pitching phenom Darvish Yu would ride the mechanical bull at Gilley's, it would be a perfect start to the 2012 baseball season.

from 30 Teams in 30 Sentences:
 Texas Rangers:  The twisted imaginary images of Japanese pitching phenom Darvish Yu riding the mechanical bull at Gilley's nightclub in Dallas, Texas decked out in a big cowboy hat and a big ass belt buckle impressing the local cowgirls who are undoubtedly soaked in an overabundance of powerful vanilla scented stripper perfume and sporting identity shielding sun glasses is so worth this non baseball related run on sentence.

Mmm, vanilla scented stripper perfume....

Until Next Time,
