Well the Rangers did not complete the sweep of the Yankees last night. In fact they got shelled. I, and I think everyone else in the free world, saw it coming when the relief pitcher Warner Madrigal came into the game. I don't think a one run game versus the Yankees in Yankee stadium was the right time to make your major league debut. I left the game before Madrigal did.
Two interesting stats I heard: Derek Jeter post-season at bats: 495 Texas Rangers Franchise: 300 In the 36 years that the Rangers have been in Texas the number of sweeps of the Yankees in New York: 1 in 2003
That was during Showalter's first season as manager. You would think in all of that time they would have lucked into a sweep with some of the Yankee teams on the 1980s to early '90s
