Short & Sweet: Rays 5, Rangers 1

All a Rangers fan can say after dropping a 5-1 decision to the Rays on Labor Day:

If the playoffs were to start tomorrow, at least Texas wouldn’t have to face James Shields again in 2011.

Goodbye and good riddance Mr. Shields! Oh, and kudos to you. You deserve a much better record than 14-10.

    You are very right that the Shields deserves a better record. He hasn’t had good run support at all this year. It’s amazing how shields is so dominate against the Rangers, who are so great offensively, and horrible against Oakland and Seattle. I’ll never understand that. (The Rays Rant)
