Best Of The West?

Rangers_Twins_Baseball_sff_173980_game.jpgBefore this weekend series, the Texas Rangers were battling for first place in the AL West.  They still are, but now do so just two games over .500 thanks to a three-game sweep by the Twins.

Boy, so far this season is shaping up pretty much like last year (with one key difference):

-Twins beat up on the AL Central (same as ’09)

-Twins cannot touch the AL East (same as ’09)

-Twins beat up on the AL West (different from ’09 and the reason why we are considered a much better team this season).

This bodes well for the start of a rather lengthy west coast road swing starting on Monday in Seattle.

Notes:

-Scary moment at the end of Sunday night’s contest when Denard Span collided with Orlando Hudson on the final play of the game.  Both were a bit slow to get up, with Hudson taking a really long time to get to his feet and likely not playing for a day or so.  Don’t have any official word yet, but the loss of Hudson for any prolonged period would be a big blow to our infield configuration (Casilla playing every day is NOT something I am comfortable with).

Preview (30-20, 1st, 3.5 GA DET): Francisco Liriano (4-3, 3.17) vs. Doug Fister (3-2, 2.03)
