ST15: Rangers lose a fiasco of a game 15-12


Simpsons fans should recognize that. That’s about what I was thinking when I saw the linescore of this game after the fact. There’s little positive that can be said about a game when there are numbers 9 and 10 in the linescore, and they’re not in the columns that say R H E, but the ones that have numbers on top of them. U-G-L-Y!
The worst part about it is one of the guys who is expected to be with the club had the worst damage – Josh Rupe. 8ER in 2+ innings. Blech.
Course, there’s offense all over the place with those gaudy numbers in the pitching lines. But it’s just an ugly game, I think I’ll say little about this, and let my Simpsons graphic do the talking. :)

  1. LOL! One of my all-time favorite Simpsons moments. Every time this episode is on I have to watch for this one and when the old X-ray machine falls on the “stunt” Milhouse.
