23 games left woo-hoo! As of now, the Rangers are 2 back of the Sox in the Wild Card and 5 behind the Angels in the division. The Angels and Red Sox have 3 games against each other next week which will be good for the Rangers either way. The Angels also have 4 games remaining vs. the Yankees. The Red Sox have 3 games against the Yankees and cap the season with 3 vs. the Blue Jays. The most difficult team the Rangers have to face is 3 games against the Rays. So I think the cards play in favor of the Rangers, but they still have take care of business, especially against the Angels, and we are down right now. Being a true fan, I wish I could just fast forward through this last 3 1/2 weeks and see who makes it. We shall see though. Hamilton is supposed to be back Friday, Young back early next week sometime.
Feldman now has 16 wins, tied for most in the AL. 12-1 on the road. If he would have started the season as a starter, he would definitely be in more talks for the CY Young, but you can’t write him off yet since he should get 5 more starts and the Rangers are still in the playoff picture.
