Rangers 2, Angels 1
For the year before the year, it's an amazing season.
Derek Holland was devastating in yesterday's complete-game, 7-0 shutout win. His fastball had life and accuracy. His curve made even Vlad Guerrero look silly. In two of his last three starts he's made us all very happy the Rangers didn't give him up in a deal for Roy Halladay, eh?
Two wins over the Angels is trumped by only thing ...
The loss of Vicente Padilla.
If there's anything that says baseball is now a serious undertaking in Arlington, it's the organizational decision to finally cut bait with this loser. Kudos.
