    watch, they're going to test adolis and he's going to test positive.

    then they'll suspend him next season.

    The only Rangers title I acknowledge are the 2014 Clements Rangers soccer championship.

    You know who’s supposed to help solve that riddle? The ******* manager. We kept losing at home and he kept doing the exact same thing over and over again. Imagine struggling to win a single game at MMP and simply refusing to start one of your best offensive producers at home.

    And now we have to live w the ******* Arlington f***ing rangers having a title. Goddamnit.

    Congrats to Southern Oklahoma.

    Hopefully the Stros add Chapman to the bullpen.

    How depressing. It should have been us. The umpire, whoever the chump was, called pitches clearly out of the strike zone, strikes, just like he/they did with the Astros. I watched the last few innings of the game. Did I mention that it was depressing? Oh, I did. Bummer.

    Least viewed WS ever. This win is meaningless and nobody cares.

    Can’t blame Dusty for this one. We saw this exact same movie in 2019 with a different manager and damn near an entirely different team. It’s just one of those things.

    Rangers won’t be as motivated next year. Just human nature.

    But the Astros gifted this to the rangers so maybe it will wake their asses up

    So starting a catcher that allowed 3 stolen bases in one inning that can't hit wasn't his decision? Or conceding the game by letting JP get shelled after the 3 batter rule expired? Or resting your closer for the final 2 games...? Or... pretty much do the equivalent of pulling Greinke for an all star set up man but worse inning after inning for 9 innings?

    And when this happens, there will be no hoopla by MLB fans on how the Rangers cheated their way to a WS. That's because they're p*****s.

    And don't forget Tucker disappearing. Went from MVP candidate in the regular season to chump.

    But can't blame him only.....all of our starting pitching was horrible. Couldn't pitch to give our offense a chance. Our offense kept having to out-score to win ball games.

    Realistically, we were only one win away from another WS title. Not bad

    What should have been. Oh well, the Rangers still lost the division!

    Ratings have been on the decline and of course we haven’t seen game 5 yet but it would appear they’ll have lost some 20 million viewers (maybe more) compared to last year. Maybe a bit of No villian, no one cares……
