I thought this place was haunted when I saw a new post.

The Rangers have a good chance to run away with the division, the Angels are worser than in a while, the A's are not ready yet and Seattle is imploding in Sleepygate.

I've been very impressed by the Rangers' pitching so far.

Elvis Andrus has been great at the plate (8th in the league in walks as of last night).

Many of their other hitters are incredibly impatient, though. They have a lot of bad at-bats and seem to give outs away too often.

This is true, especially with some of their backups - and they use their backups quite a bit, especially since the wheat and the chaff haven't exactly separated at catcher. A lot of their starters have a bit of an eye, but still are swing first hitters. This can cause problems with guys that are good at locating on the edge of the strike zone and a little off the plate. Such as, Romero today.

I've had today's game on the tube while doing some stuff. Romero has looked great, but I'm even surprised he's up to 12 Ks with 2 outs in the ninth. The 4 or 5 strikeouts I've seen that have been swinging strikeouts on the changeup, the hitters have missed the ball by an average of 94 feet. Filthy.

I'm amazed by Romero this year. He always had a changeup, but even with the decent ERA, he looked absolutely clueless out there last year.

My fantasy team loves the Rangers today.
