G157: Rangers lose in Oakland, 9-4

Well, normally you’d want to play baseball in October. However, when your team is this far out, and this far behind, it’s not the kind of baseball you want to play.
Darren Oliver against Barry Zito. Gee, I wonder who will win this one? Zito was his usual great pitcher. Oliver was his usual not so great pitcher – giving up 7 runs and 9 hits in 5.1 innings.
It’s getting pretty hard to write about these guys given what kind of season they’ve had. Yeah, I know they’re playing hard and all, but as a fan, I’m a bit burnt out writing about them losing. :(
