Who's Who, Here?

After watching the better part of two different ball games tonight, I've decided that the Rangers and Red Sox switched uniforms tonight. The Red Sox played a lot like I'm used to seeing the Rangers play tonight. Although they didn't get credited with any errors, there were plays that should have been made, players falling down, sliding when it wasn't necessary...just overall sloppy play. Offensively, JD Drew was about it. So they lose to the Jays. Fortunately, the Evil Empire got their clocks cleaned by the Rays. Heh. 13-4.

So then, I turn on the TV to watch the Rangers play the Angels out in Nevernever land. As of just a couple minutes ago, bottom of the ninth, it was 11-0 in favor of the Rangers. Eric Broussard hit a grand slam, our guy Josh Hamilton hit an opposite field triple and a double, Ian Kinsler hit two doubles, and our ex-Red Sox Kason Gabbard pitched 7 innings of shut-out baseball. Gabbard and David Murphy worked out really well for the Rangers. Too bad Gagne didn't work for the Sox. That was a stupid trade anyway. The Sox didn't need a closer. Gagne is a closer. Anyway...the Rangers played like the Sox tonight. This will put them at .500 again, for the second time this season. I don't remember when the last time they were at .500. I'm not sure they ever were last season.

Well, onward to Whatever.

TTFN, y'all.

My theory about the Gagne trade? The baseball gods punished the Red Sox for being greedy & trying to have two closers. =P Although I will say that I wish the Sox had kept Gabbard & traded Lester. That has been my gut feeling all along. We'll see if it was right or not. ;-)

I have to agree with you on the greed part, Dawn. I get a little tired of the "Let's get this guy so the Yankees can't have him," trick.
