G90: Rangers lose slugfest to Giants, 10-8

About halfway through this game, I said to my wife – “That’s it, season’s over, let’s start on next year”. My gut feeling is that this is it – we’re not going to make a big run at it. In spring training, I felt that this was a year for rebuilding (not a lot of it, just a little), but this year wouldn’t be our year. That’s been obvious both by the play all season, and by the play last night.
We almost pulled off our second most spectacular comeback of the roadtrip in the top of the 9th, but we fell two runs short. Our bullpen is just a mess now, totally unreliable.
In the forthcoming cleaning, I sincerely hope we keep one player. John Wetteland. I really want to keep him. A lot.
