Hi. Did You Hear About the Rangers? They’re Kind of Awesome.

photo (10)Just stop for a minute, and take this in: A team who was mired in bankruptcy, with a payroll of $55 million, just beat a team that basically expects to go to the World Series every year because it’s what they do. And now the Rangers will go to the World Series. The Rangers, not the Yankees. Some fans have waited patiently since the team came here for this. Some just noticed that there’s a baseball club in Arlington, and the debit card charge at Wal-Mart for their Rangers shirt hasn’t even cleared the bank yet.

But I think Ron Washington has summed up the feeling best. Here, and here.  Wash’s heart and gut beat (as someone aptly pointed out to me as we all watched the game) Joe Girardi’s binder. It sounds like a story book ending, because it is. These are your Texas Rangers, y’all, and they’re going to the World Series.
