Price Is Right: Sends Rangers Home, Rays to Cleveland

The bigger they blow—the harder they fall’ and the blow-hard Ranger fans, who believe in “Texas Exceptionalism,” are heading home in their SUVs to their McMansion Rancheros to watch the Playoffs on their huge-screen “tee-vees” and shoot the bull.

In the Lone Star state they say: “Don’t mess with Texas!”

What is that saying: “All hat and no cattle.”?


The Price was Right tonight as LHP David Price held the Rangers to two runs in 9 innings for a 5-2 win and the Rays punched their ticket to the next 1-game Wild Card against Francona’s Indians in Wednesday night in Cleveland. [8:05 EST]

 “He [Price] was beyond spectacular.  He got into a nice groove in the 6th inning and I saw I could leave him in there,” said Maddon, who let price go the distance for the W.

“If a lot of those guys want to stand up close to the plate, I got something for them [inside fastballs].” David Price.

To paraphrase the mean deli counter guy in Seinfeld:

“No Fenway Frank for Yu!”

    Too bad you won’t make it past the first round.

      too bad you didn’t make the playoffs

    Hi Christine, The Rangers were the team that Boston fans LEAST wanted to play; they knew that Texas was a much better team than Tampa or Cleveland; I wrote this story to express that worry:
    With another starting pitcher [maybe a FA] the Rangers would be a favorite to get to the WS next year.

    Great thanks for reading our stories here on BSI.

      they’ll have Colby Lewis, Harriston and Feliz back for spring training….that’s a good start!!
      I bet Washington loses his gig, and Girardi is a candidate to replace him

      • Earl Nash

        Good take on Girardi and I would want some closer insurance for Fernando Rodney…Also, the kid, Joey Gallo may be ready for prime time at 3b…

        • Michael Macaulay-Birks

          its not just the pitching…they also let Napoli and Hamilton walk and traded Young, so they didn’t have quite the offensive punch they had 2009-2012

          • Earl Nash

            They were a bat shy this year. Prospects Smoak and Olt were power guys, who may yet blossom. I think Joey Gallo will be that bat…
