What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Derek has given the game its due, he has ridden the wave of success and failure, he has done it without losing himself in the storm, and now what he has done will hold true to vault the Rangers to the Classic for the second straight year.
It doesn't even have to be 8 shutout innings like he is capable of with the bullpen we have to throw out there, but I am predicting 6 shutout innings or 6 innings of 2 run ball or less.
As for the offense they will get it done. It will likely be close but they will get it done.
A train with the weight of experience behind it can't go fast. A freight train moves in a slow and steady way demolishing everything in its path. Today for Game 6 the Rangers are that train and Derek Holland is its engine.
That ball bounced off that bag, I believe, so that Derek could shine today.
Rangers in 6. Its time.
Rangers in 6, but Scooter gets the "W". Rangers get bombs from 2-of-4 from Hamilton, Beltre, Napoli, and Murphy. Holland give up 5 runs in 4 innings, but Rangers win 8-6.
I'll go with Holland redeems himself and shuts 'em down. And, as Scoob said, the offense produces. Actually, I think they explode, to show just who they are as a team and what they are capable of on a given night. Rangers in 6. And it IS time!
Rangers break on top early ... Holland rebounds nicely ... the electricity from the crowd fuels our boys ... and the runs start to flow in the late innings, as it's the Tigers bullpen that can't get it done ...
Rangers 10, Tigers 3 ...
Apparently, it seems as if it is a Scoob, View, And Ricky combo platter. No matter. Hello World Series!
Well darn ... I was off on the score ... but not on the scenario I predicted ...
Now gentlemen ... take the rest of the weekend off ... get a little rest ... and then ... FINISH THE JOB !!!
GO RANGERS !!!
