Counting Down the Many Highlights of This Rangers Season Before First Pitch of the ALDS

Categories: Sports

Doesn't seem like that long ago we were just here: trying to work and watch a Rangers post-season game. Today's extended dance remix of the 2011 major league season starts at 4:07 this afternoon at the Ballpark in Arlington, with Texas, for the first time ever, facing Rays rookie Matt Moore, who has but just 9.1 innings pitched to his credit to go along with a 2.89 ERA. That isn't among the reasons ESPN's Jayson Stark is picking Texas to go all the way; matter of fact, in his email newsletter sent this morning, Jamey Newberg warns that Moore "may be the game's best pitching prospect." Still, this year's Rays have barely touched C.J. Wilson, managing just 10 hits and and eight walks in 75 plate appearances during the regular season.

But before first pitch, above you'll find a gift sent by a Friend of Unfair Park this morning: the Top 30 plays of the Rangers' 2011 season, for those with 17 minutes to spare this morning. On the other side is MLB's Rangers regular-season recap, shorter but no less thrilling.

Ok, dammit will post here. 

Sigh. While I am getting the truck unloaded and trying to get on down the road CJ was getting 3 outs in the first. While I am sitting there waiting for the other vehicles to get the hell out of the way 5 runs and a plunked batter transpired. So deflating. Perhaps this is for the best. We didn't win at home last time around. Was Bush there? Did they show his grinning mug again? Did we cheer? Can I blame him for bad juju? Beer and tacos are the salve of choice at the moment.It just doesn't feel right to hijack the CoA blog. I suppose we sports fiends are relegated to coming over here to vent and commiserate. Heard Big Bob on the littlest of Tickets many times and seen his bona fides concerning such matters so I reckon that is all good, but I wonder if our less than politically correct discussions will make muster here. Shrug. Time will tell.

That's the way the playoffs go.

With my allegiances still squarely with my old Giants, I can't say I watched much Rangers baseball this season. But if there's room on the bandwagon -- and judging from StubHub, there is -- I want on. I'm thinking left-field bleachers tomorrow night, but I'm open to suggestions.

According to an email from the Rangers last night: "Less than 750 scattered singles and standing room ticketsremain for both Games 1 and 2 of the 2011 ALDS." But by way of StubHub, I'd go with those two in 330 myself. Saw several games sitting up there this year.

Yep, that is the area I like too. Took my daughter to her first game this year. Section 331.

Saw several games in section 420 at my house. The view was a bit hazy at times.

I watched 2 games from 320 this month; great seats along the 3rd base line just forward of homeplate.  Had a blast!!  Go Rangers!
