I didn't sleep a wink last night -- kept replaying over and over the myriad mistakes made by Ron Washington and the Texas Rangers last night, twice one strike away from Winning It All. They're recounted below, blow by painful blow; how Sam gets it up for tonight's Do-or-Die preview and open thread is beyond me. We also touched on this tweet seen above, the screengrab of which was sent to me during the ninth. Deadspin's right: It's not FOX4's fault the Rangers lost -- not unless Steve Eager made the call to pitch Ogando and Oliver, or Heather Hays was butchering balls at first. But ... come on, people. Get your shit together.
