The dust has settled. The smoke has cleared and this just in; Cliff Lee is really, really good!
In a series where the home team didn't win a single game, the Texas Rangers have finally won their first ever postseason series and move on to face the Yanks.
Cliff Lee is now 6-0 with a 1.44 E.R.A in the postseason. In this year's ALDS, he went 2-0, struck out 21 (an ALDS record), and walked nobody! Say it with me...ewwwww!
This Texas team is one that is easy to rally around. The claw and antler gestures made from the dugout bring me back to the days of the rally monkey and dousing Josh Hamilton, a recovering alcoholic, in ginger ale instead of the traditional booze shows that this team oozes true class.
The last time Texas faced the defending World Champs, they swept the Yankees in 3 games. Will it be a repeat preformance?
