Remember before the season what people were saying about the Rangers?

They are not going to make it, the offense is not good enough to cover the pitching, and the worst was the people that said the Angels are too good for them.

Well, the Rangers have proved most baseball fans wrong.

The Rangers gave the Indian's a good old beat-up. Not only did they sweep, they did it convincingly. In all games, they scored over eight runs, and they beat them by three runs in their worst game.

The Indian's are a great team, and the Rangers proved to the World that they can play with the best—and win. I bet they can beat other great teams like the Yankees and Red Sox.

And the Rangers playing well is good news for me; I have Michael Young and Hank Blalock on my fantasy team. If this keeps up i will be in good shape.

On the other side of the AL West we have the Angels, they won two of there three games against the A's. After losing young and good man rookie Nick Adenhart (May He Rest In Peace) in a car crash they did not play the last game.

I think there starting rotation

I am not saying that they are a bad team. I bet they will win more then 85 games, but I do think the Rangers will win the West. It is going to be close, just like the NL East, a good race until the end.

Good luck to the Rangers on their quest to win the West.
