A Moment of Silence for Your Texas Rangers

Okay, that's long enough.

Now, what happened?

A season that began with that three-game sweep of Cleveland way back in April and held our interest until mid-September is closing with an all too familiar whimper - meaningless games in October for the 10th consecutive year.

With their loss to the Angels last night, the Rangers were officially eliminated from the Wild Card and the post-season. For a long time it appeared this year would be a success, but right now it sure doesn't feel like it.
