Not a preview.

In the last 17 games, Rangers starting pitchers have an ERA of 3.24.

Twice in those 17 games the Texas starter allowed more than three earned runs.

Twice.

My favorite versions of my team work counts, and don’t beat themselves.

They throw strikes, and don’t beat themselves.

They don’t give away pitches and they don’t consistently squander opportunities and they take care of the baseball.

They slow the game down, and don’t let it get too big.

They play smart baseball.

They don’t beat themselves.

The Rangers have a losing record over their last 17 games, even though their rotation is, by and large, dealing.

That is exactly what tomorrow’s report will not be about.
