38 years of futility – not yet killed


October 12, 2010 by falcon7204

The Texas Rangers moved to Arlington, Texas after the 1971 season. Since then, they’ve been to the playoffs four times. In all that time, before tonight, they had won three games and lost 11. Tonight, that all changed as the Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 to move to the American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees.

They’re popping champagne in the Rangers locker room, but there is no room to celebrate just yet. Although the Rangers have won their first ever playoff series, they’ve never been AL champions, nor have they been to the World Series. This is a nice night for the Rangers, but they have to realize they still have work to do. Eight more wins and they’ll be a truly historic Rangers team. Until then, the road ahead beckons.

    What an amazing series. At least one of the divisional matchups went 5 games right? Cliff Lee is just unbelievable out there. Big time players come up big in big games, and Cliff Lee is sure showing his value and what the Rangers hoped they would get when the traded for him earlier in the the season. Where would they be without him? It’s been so fun to watch him pitch, and hopefully they can stomp on the Yankees in the ALCS. Hey, also you think you could take a look at my blog cuz I really wanna hear what you have to say.
