Neftali Feliz After Striking Out A-Rod to end the 2010 ALCS, sending Texas to its first World Series

Neftali Feliz After Striking Out A-Rod to end the 2010 ALCS, sending Texas to its first World Series

I started this blog in 2010, the year the Rangers first went to the World Series. The original name of the blog was “The Futility Ends Here”. After about a week, I knew it wasn’t a very catchy title so I changed it to “World Series 40 Rangers Fan 0″. Much better. And it made it sweet when the…

SO LONG AND WELCOME BACK

Another week, another Ranger lands on the disabled list. Alexi Ogando is the latest to join the walking wounded. Things have gotten so bad I’m fully expecting to hear that Luis Ortiz, the Rangers #1 pick in Thursday’s MLB

Please. Make. It. Stop.

Please. Make. It. Stop.

If you believe in forever

Then life is but a simple dream

If there’s a Rangers DL list

You know you’ve got a hell of a team

Team, team

Martin gave us shutouts

Derek won Game 4 ‘gainst St. Loo

And Matty won 18 in two thousand 12

He was gonna mash 50 home runs

Remember Prince that way

They’ve all found a spot we rue

And that is on the shelf

If you believe in forever

Then life is but a simple…

In 2010, I had hopes the Texas Rangers would finally make a name for themselves in the American League. They exceeded my expectations and went to the World Series.

In 2011, I KNEW the Rangers had a championship caliber club and hoped they’d prove it. They came tantalizingly close to sealing the deal.

In 2012, Yu Darvishcame along and I thought the Rangers could make another run for the elusive…
