    in hindsight i still think it was a good thing to get cliff lee, he helped us get over the hump in the playoffs, i dont think we win a series without him. Now, this team has the confidence to beat anyone, anytime, anywhere!

    I meant a playoff series, we hadn't ever won one before he came and dominated for us up until the world series

    Millwood vs Lewis tomorrow. Lewis has a good chance to get to 2-0. Hopefully we can win the series tomorrow. Go Rangers! BTW, murphy is on fire!

    1-0 Rangers going into the 3rd. Millwood is already at 50 pitches.

    Back to back baby! :laugh2:

    Kinsler then Elvis!

    Rangers up 3-0. Could this be the 3rd shutout by the Rangers already?

    back to back home runs from Kins and Andrus to provide a little padding going into the late innings. 3-0!

    Damn. Is Nathan going to choke again? Already? This time for 2 runs?

    That was a millimeter on the bat from being a blown save / loss in one swing.

    That's the second run Nathan has gave up, and it's not over yet. 1 out.

    2 run lead. Save blown. :facepalm:

    The pitches have decent movement, but they break right in to the middle of the plate.

    Joe Nathan sucks. We need a new closer.

    Eh, if he was any good he should be starting. I'm OK with a so-so closer.

    Ron Washington's decision making prowess makes me want to hurl sometimes. Nathan shouldn't have been in that ball game after the first 2 runs, period.

    Nathan sucks...he won't finish the season as closer, much less make it to August IMO. They're taking a flyer on him hoping he can be a lights out closer again but his best years were a long time ago plus pre-surgery.

    If Nathan blows another save in any of his next 5-6 appearances, I would be very tempted to put Ogando in his spot.

    Those are the worst types of losses: when the starting pitching is incredible and the bullpen pulls their weight...and then the suppossed sure thing closer blows it in huge fashion...again.

    We are 6-0 if not for Nathan.
