The goods.

And just like that, the Texas Rangers are tied for the second-best win-loss record in the American League.

And, with all the hang-wringing over the offense, the club is now hitting .273/.341/.400, good for the second-best batting average in the AL and the third-highest OPS.

And, in spite of injuries that had four of the club’s projected five starting pitchers inactive to begin the season, the four Rangers starters who are active now have a composite ERA of 1.70.

And, yeah, my favorite Martin(s).

A week ago I tweeted:

10 at home vs. HOU, SEA, and CWS.  Win seven and record would be 11-8.  We good with that?

The consensus answer: You bet.

Split tonight (Colby Lewis’s next start) and tomorrow’s (Robbie Ross Jr.’s) against the White Sox, and that’s where Texas would sit.

Still good with that?
