I’m convinced…I saw the best team in baseball this past week end and it’s not the Tigers. The Texas Rangers have an awesome offense and their pitching is top notch. Josh Hamilton is a hitting machine, not to mention Michael Young, who decimated Detroit pitching. Ranger Manager Ron Washington comes from the Minnesota system…so his team’s attitude reflects that never say die and never give up attitude. They keep coming at you and continue to keep the pressure on.
Wow….where’s the defense??? When the Tigers opened the season I didn’t think it would be a major issue because of the team’s offense….but I was wrong. Not only is the team not hitting…but a leaky defense cost the Bengals at least 2 games against the Rangers.
Brandon Inge is the new Jason Grilli. Remember the relief pitcher was booed even when he tied his shows…and now Inge is in the same boat.
He came to the plate this week end…he was lustily booed. Now may even he might welcome a trade or release.
