I'm confused, is this what winning baseball looks like? I think I forgot.
Congratulations to Lisalverto Bonilla on collecting his first big league win in his first major league start, though he owes a hat tip to his offense for providing the deciding three runs after Bonilla had already completed his night the half-inning before.
With 14 games to go, the Rangers must play .500 ball the rest of the way to avoid 100 losses. In more damaging news, with Texas's sudden/miraculous two-game surge in the win column, their stronghold on the #1 pick in 2015 has lessened. They now lead Colorado by a mere three games for ownership of the worst record in MLB in 2014.
Should the Rangers surrender the bottom spot -- which for some reason wouldn't at all surprise me -- the collapse would be consistent with the way they operated during September in 2012 and '13.
I'm kidding, but not really.
At this point in the season, baseball is on the back-burner. I don't want to speak for everyone, but I'm fairly certain most of us just want some resolution with the recent Ron Washington saga; wins and losses don't mean very much. Unless, of course, the Rangers keep winning.
