O/U on number of games we win when scoring fewer than 6 runs.  Is 25 too high?

I say that sounds reasonable but I’d still take the under.  30th in team ERA right now, which is a trend I expect to continue. Probably 20 wins is about where I’d draw the line.

 

i don’t expect to keep people under 6 runs for half our games.  That makes 81.  Half of those we probably score under 6 as well.  And half of those we win.  And I think I’m erring in the Rangers favor on the 81 number.

We give up 9.33 runs per game, but luckily we’ve got a home series against the last place team starting tonight. 

Here’s to #homeruns, #boobjobs, and feeling good all the time.

I generally hate the Rangers unis but the all white is the best IMO

 

I was listening to the Rangers on Deck podcast last week and one of the guys hinted that the Rangers may be working with the same design group who rebranded the Nashville Sounds.  

Hopefully, we get a rebrand and better unis for the new stadium.

hope we can pull this one out.  would suck to lose when we hold someone to 2 runs.

Decent stuff out of Sampson considering the pitching for this season so far.

Sampson seems like the Rangers best starting pitcher option and he's not even starting.

He may have more innings than half our rotation since the majority of them can't make it through 4 innings.

I don't remember ever reading about this, regarding Shelby Miller. It turns out that his father, Mitch, was a fellow Brownwood firefighter and personal friend of Shannon Stone. Mitch will be in attendance for Shelby's first Rangers start tonight.

These short starts are going to take some getting used to.

Hopefully it’s a little better against teams with weaker lineups

NIce triple by Choo. Ballsy choice to go on that.

Really shocked they didn't pull Verlander already. Nice 5th so far.

Yep. I’m at the game. Astros fans are pissed. Verlander doesn’t have it. Men on first and second, no outs, and 4 lefties in a row coming up. Thought they would pull him. Mazara made them pay.

Above .500 again. Nice win. Bats came alive when needed and the pitching wasn't too wheels off.

They were replaying the game at lunch. LeClerc's 6 pitch save was pretty sweet. Closing on 25 straight scoreless innings.

This post made me click on the last page of the astros thread. There is some whining. Is this blue really that ridiculous?

His strike zone is terrible and he is starting fights with players. Don't think it has really affected the score though. Maybe the Astros have 1 with a decent ump.
