It's Over

The baseball season ended today. And on the last day of the season, the Texas Rangers lost the division championship. They had been in sole possession of the division lead for all but 3 games of the 162-game schedule. The game was ugly. The starting pitcher, Ryan Dempster, could not get any further than three innings.Three Ranger errors, including a horrendous drop of a pop fly to center by Josh Hamilton, only added to the pain of watching this once-great team stagger into a one-game wild-card playoff game. Which they will have to win if they are to continue in post-season play. I tell you right now, I'm fully prepared to lose on Friday. Something has happened to this team. They don't have the fire anymore. They don't look like they are having any fun. A team like this is not going to succeed in the playoffs. Here is the box score and play-by-play for this terrible game.
