At this point don't fear the valleys, just enjoy the roller-coaster.

Just when - yet again - it seemed your Texas Rangers were going to fall out of playoff contention by not scoring a single run in their last 15 innings in Baltimore, this happens.

The resilient Rangers, playing without big bats Michael Young and Josh Hamilton, last night scored 21 runs on 31 hits (Marlon Byrd had seven) in sweeping a doubleheader from the crappy Cleveland Indians. Why this didn't happen over the weekend I have no idea. Will it continue today I have am clueless.

I do have a decent vision of what will happen today ...

when Cy Young candidate - yep, I said it - Scott Feldman takes the mound. The Rangers should get 6+ innings and should lead heading into the 7th.
