Who should uncommitted fans be pulling for?
Elvis Andrus can’t stop messing hilariously with Adrian Beltre, and Robinson Cano gave his shortstop a dirty look (but was joking).
It’s the return of the bat.
David Murphy, pitching in relief, works some black magic on the Red Sox.
I say this with full awareness that baseball is over a century old. Trust me.
Miguel Cabrera put on a virtuoso performance in Detroit’s loss to Texas last night.
Ian Kinsler: take a bow, buddy.
The Houston Astros just can’t win.
THERE ARE DOGS EVERYWHERE
New Angels slugger Josh Hamilton will probably regret saying this.
In the 4th inning of yesterday’s Twins-Rangers game in Texas, some good old fashioned thunder and lightning scared a bunch of millionaires. It was funny.
If you consider that the Rangers used to be owned by George Bush, maybe this isn’t all that surprising.
The Texas Rangers have dogs throwing out first pitches, so now we know why they’re the best team in baseball. (It certainly has nothing to do with Josh Hamilton tearing the cover off the ball.)
Because charts make everything easier!
The Texas Rangers’ center fielder is swinging the stick hotter than anybody in the world right now. Twitter attempts to wrap their collective minds around this.
The Texas Rangers’ outfielder becomes only the 16th man to accomplish the feat, doing so against the Baltimore Orioles. To give you some perspective, more people have thrown Perfect Games than hit 4 homers in one game. Check them out.
This kid proves that crying your eyes out at a ballgame is a tactic that can work.
The recently retired, future Hall of Fame catcher returned to Texas to throw out the first pitch before last night’s game. But as the PA announcer said, it didn’t seem right. So Pudge lined up behind the plate for one more throw to second.
For some people catching a home run at an MLB game is a once in a lifetime experience. This guy’s done it so often that he has finally perfected his celebration.
This is a beautiful, fitting tribute from a classy organization.
Rangers’ lefty Derek Holland relieves WFAA Channel 8’s chief meteorologist to let the folks in Dallas-Fort Worth know what they should expect in the coming week. I’m not exactly sure what his wouldya jus’ look at that? shtick is supposed to make fun of, but Holland does a pretty good Will Ferrell impersonation of Harry Carey.
“My friend had this done before Game 7,” our tipster writes. “Maybe you can show the world how big of an idiot he is, or just a die hard fan.”
Well the best World Series game in at least 14 years (is 1997’s Game 7 really the last transcendent one? What am I forgetting?), maybe longer, took place last night. The St. Louis Cardinals shocked the Rangers by coming back from behind four times and basically winning the most dramatic baseball game of the season by far. How could this happen? Well some might blame Ron Washington’s terrible managing ability, but I personally blame Fox Dallas who sent this out last night in the 9th inning.

I haven’t followed the Texas Rangers since I was 14 and have no idea what ranking or record they have right now. But it’s nice to be reminded that people from my hometown act like total idiots.

The Texas Rangers have advanced to the 2011 ALCS, beating the Tampa Bay Rays in the Division Series for the second straight year. But will this team have enough to win the ALCS and get back into the World Series? They certainly have a fun cast of characters.

Tom Willis was born without arms, but is aiming to throw out the first pitch at every major league baseball stadium. So far, he has thrown out 9 first pitches at different stadiums and will get his 10th in September with the Texas Rangers.
