How’s That Trade Working Out For You?

July 11, 2010 – 6:23 pm

After all the snarky remarks coming from Texas Ranger fans and pundits about how the Rangers beat out the Yankees for Cliff Lee, you had to find Lee’s Ranger debut to be rather humorous, as he got rocked for three home runs and nine hits in losing to Baltimore, 6-1. And now today, Baltimore finished their sweep of the four-game series with a 4-1 win. Which just goes to reinforce what I was saying the other day about the Rangers and the entire West division. The Orioles are the last place team in the AL East, a mind-boggling 27 games behind the Yankees — and yet they sweep the AL West first place Rangers at home. Pretty sad statement about the quality of baseball in the West division.
