Substitute Uncle Mike for Handsome Jake in that order and you probably have the LDS starting nine.

I would guess at #3 but he could slide in at #6 with Reddick dropping to second leadoff at #9 in either case.

He breezed him, one more time!

Doesn’t this little Fletcher twit know that JV is trying to get 300/3000 strikeouts, how dare he put that ball in play! I mean, do the Rangers and their fans really think this way? I hope the record books have an asterisk next to Minor’s 200 k. What a farce.

Verlander reaches #3,000!

Unfortunately, it was also a wild pitch, and the runner reaches base.

Calhoun victimized for both 3000 and 300.

As Blummer pointed out, Calhoun reaching on #3, 000 is what gave Verlander a chance at #300.  If he doesn't extend that inning, he probably leaves with 299.

Those two teams are I think clearly more dangerous than either the Yankees or the Twins. Especially in a five game series.

I don't want to offend anyone, but I expect the divisional series to be the most challenging series they play if they end up playing more than the one.

Me too. This is going to go down as one of the historically great baseball teams. They've done it all year without drama, just sitting astride the league and dominating. They are a mill efficiently converting opposing payrolls into losses.
