Scouts: Welcome back everybody! *Looks around…Wait….where is everyone? Did everyone forget that we are back in the office today? I mean, it’s only for one game, but it was an exciting match-up right? Right? Ok, so not so terribly exciting. I gave Prof the day off since there was only one game to cover, but in her honor, I will continue Girl Power Friday. But since there’s only the one game, let’s double down on this and find ourself a two hit wonder!
Astros 0, Rangers 5 – Scouts: Looks like I’m not the only one not quite ready to get back at it. The Astros forgot to show up to Texas and received a bit of a whoopin. Lance Lynn was the first to get to 12 wins, combining with Jose Leclerc and Chris Martin to produce the Rangers’ fourth shutout of the season. Let’s hope they can retain that power, because 6 of the next 8 games will be against Houston. Framber Valdez on the other hand did not fare so well for the Astros, allowing 4 runs on 4 hits and was unable to make it out of the first inning. Not a great way to start the second half of the season. It didn’t help that Houston lost Alex Bregman in the 3rd inning after taking a ball off the chin. I’m going to take a pass on highlights today, because well, there really isn’t any good ones to choose from.

What’s a Framber Valdez? Is that anything like an Easter capybara?
….nine hours on a plane from Madrid, a long nap, then I wake up and we’re down by two already and I’m thinking “uh-oh, more of the same.” Then I’m driving up I-95 listening to the interview with the freshly minted Feesh draftee J J Bleday while Caleb Smith is dancing around off first like Jackie Robinson, Jason Vargas is getting distracted, and the third inning fireworks start going orf.
So let’s have a special round of Voodoo Rangers for Smith’s antics – all that clowning seemed to help him recover his location – and watch the guys get on with the very do-able job of climbing over the Mutts, who are going down like Bugs Bunny in “Falling Hare” and likely about to be dismantled by the waiver trade deadline. Who’d’a thunk it? Not me, that’s fer damned sure.
