G59: Rangers lose 7th in a row; to Expos, 13-10

I listened to the beginning of this game, but I was on my way to get my hair cut this evening, and when I got there, I stopped. I came back out, turned the car on, and we had just gone down 13-4, so I didn’t bother to listen to any more of the game. I probably should have, as we scored 6 more runs, but didn’t win. Oh well, major slide – I didn’t think we’d slide this much when we were within one game of 500. /me sighs.
Anyway, I was a bit bummed, but I understood why we traded Ruben Sierra yesterday. We’re trying to get younger, and he wasn’t doing what he was supposedly here for (offense off the bench). He did take some shots at us on the way out of town, but I can’t imagine he’ll get a lot more playing time in New York – I think Ruben thinks he should be top of the line every day player, and I don’t think he’s that good anymore. Oh well. Maybe in a couple of years if he’s still around, he could do a Rickey Henderson and come back for a fourth go around. :)
There’s a story about Juan Gonzalez’ return home for this series here.
