The Rangers Are 14-10

Half-price Papa John's tomorrow plus a series win before even playing the finale? I'll take it. Derek Holland was today's starting pitcher. 6 innings on 90 pitches with no runs given up. 4 hits, no walks. No strikeouts.

Computers (Still) Don't Like The Rangers

Listen, I like projections. I like playoff odds. I like what computers have to say, because computers are the closest we can get to objective truth in baseball. There, I'm guilty.The fact is that computers haven't been impressed by the Rangers over the last couple of years. They still are not impressed. Before the year I wrote that FanGraphs and PECOTA projected the Rangers at 81...
