Fat Lady May Be Warming Up, But Rangers Haven't Won The West ... Yet

I'll say it, Texas Rangers' fever is at an all-time high.

Sunday night's 6-4 win improved Tommy Hunter to 8-0, allowed the Rangers to win three of four from the Anaheim Angels and pushed their lead to seven games with 63 remaining. More than 160,000 fans went to Arlington Thursday-Sunday.

With Cliff Lee and C.J. Wilson starting and Neftali Feliz closing and Josh Hamilton and Michael Young hitting, the Rangers can see the finish line without too much help from lasik surgeon Dr. Gary Tylock.

That said, no need yet to call former Mayor Laura Miller. Keep the parade routes handy, but it's not time yet for a planning meeting.

Seven up with 63 remaining is nice and all, but there have been bigger collapses in Major League Baseball ...
