If the Rangers Can Beat Justin Verlander in Detroit, Watch Out

Two more homers. Another win, this one 3-0 over the Baltimore Orioles. Three consecutive series victories.

Everything, it seems, is going boffo for the Rangers. With 18 dingers, 58 runs, splendid starting pitching and an 8-1 record, they are both the talk of baseball and the best team in the sport.

But now ... Detroit.

Once upon time Seattle's Kingdome was the Rangers' House of Horrors. Then for a while it was Toronto's SkyDome. But with 12 losses in their last 14 games there, it's now Detroit's Comerica Park.

Before last season the Rangers had lost 11 consecutive games there. C.J. Wilson had a memorable meltdown inning in Detroit in 2009. In 2008 they allowed the Tigers an 11-run inning. Couple of years ago the Tigers so obliterated Texas in a three-game series that owner Tom Hicks came this close to firing manager Ron Washington.

The Rangers play the Tigers in Motown today at noon. If that isn't ominous enough, they're facing a pitcher they almost never beat.

Justin Verlander is 5-0 with a 1.66 ERA in his last six starts against the Rangers, allowing only seven earned runs in 38 innings. He hasn't lost to the Rangers since 2006.

If the Rangers can beat their nemisis pitcher in their graveyard park, this truly will be the best start to a season in franchise history.

That's it for Kergo talk today? We need more posts tomorrow boys, ya'll are making me a legend! THANK YOU.

BTW, Kerg's is not even remotely concerned about the Kergo record, and THE SOX beat the Yanks in a series. The Sox could go 40-122, and as long as they beat the eff'in' Yanks-I'm cool.

More:-Walmart-Recipes-Fat Ladies-Redneck crap................................this blog kinda sucks when I'm busy with the working.

Thank you.....I am fighting for this country one post at a time; we need to become a nation of leaders once more. Progress. Teddy Roosevelt. "Carry a big stick". Walden. HST! Hunter S Thompson. THE AMERICAN DREAM!!!!!!!!! I will fight for you all. Now, let's divide and conquer. Rob Em, Scott and dr. g. here; the rest of us on the QUALITY SIDE. Let's dream, and reveal a quality plan. My plan, to make the USA #1 forever. Then much clapping and old ladies shaking arms that look like droopey Cheetos.

B@tches, ya'll cain't do what I do, you know why, cause daddy has a plan!

BTW, tomorrow I tell the story about living on the border (Blue Bird Motel) in Laredo. A guy tried to kill me with a butter knife. So, I can put up with turds on this blob (he he).

Recipe:Spanish Rice (real basic):-boil rice-add butter-add tomato sauce and tabasco-garlic-diced toms' and onions-oregano..........and Cumin, Coriander if you got it!

Mix well and serve with jalapeno corn bread or beans and warn tortillas.

Being good at Monday evening quarterbacking, I predict that the Rangers will win this afternoon in Detroit. My gosh, I looked into the future and they did win today. Way to go!!!!

The Rangers need to get Verlander's pitch count up like the victorious Yankees did (114 pitches through 6 innings) instead of letting him coast like the losing Orioles did (108 pitches through 8 innings) in order to get to the shabby Tiger bullpen (11 earned runs in last 12 innings).

Win or lose today, take 2 outa 3 and we're still doing work. What the hell is up with three noon starts in a row, Mon/Tue/Wed...oh that's right, guess the Detroitians don't have to get to their job. Sucks for me though. Goooo Rangers!

Did y'all hear Junior talking about standing on pit row for Saturday's race without earplugs? Damn it boy, you don't have a lick of sense. I didn't need any earplugs meself, as Iwas entertained in a "luxury" suite by Mr. Joe Gibbs and Denny Hamlin.

Come on Rob, we ALL know it's you. Come on, let's see your post about cooking and cleaning, and other "gay" stuff. Ha ha. Hey, atleast you think it's funny. OK, NOW press the "like" button about 400 times you flaccid turd. I thank you all for the support, and with that, we will make this country great again!
