Guaranteed your Tuesday was better than the Texas Rangers.
Josh Hamilton back on the disabled list. Another reminder why they can never ever trust Vicente Padilla. Allowed a 7-run inning to the Yankees, biggest against them all season. Even TV analyst Tom Grieve suffered a hamstring cramp during the telecast.
After four games so far this season, it's not unfair to say the Rangers don't belong in the same class as New York. Cumulative score: Yankees 35, Rangers 13.
This one looked hideously familiar. Padilla hit batters. He balked in a run. The Rangers' defense failed to turn a key double play. The offense produced its only runs came via a home run.
One game doesn't denote a trend. Does four?
