G73: Rangers lose 7th in a row AGAIN, 3-1 to Houston

Lost 7 in a row. Lost 19 of last 21. About to set a franchise record for futility going all the way back to 1972 when we first moved here from Washington DC. Jay Powell sucks. I think the horse can pitch better than what we throw out there. Pick one. As bad as it seems, I get the feeling it will get worse – I don’t think we’ve hit rock bottom yet, as bad as things are. :(
Actually, Joaquin Benoit was quite good Sunday night. At the start of the game, I thought he had a shot at the 3 or 4 year old record of a Ranger pitcher not getting 10 strikeouts in a game. He came close (he had 8). He looked quite good, quite sharp until he appeared to run out of gas in the sixth – which is far more than we’ve gotten from a starter lately.
We got our only run on a very long Mark Teixeira home run the bottom of the first inning to (GASP) give us a lead. It actually stayed that way until Benoit gave up two runs in the 6th and was pulled.
Given there’s not much else to write about, what’s with the crappy player intro music? There’s some really horrible player music now – what’s that garbage that’s being played before Kevin Mench’s at bats? Ewwwww…
