Do you smell it? It's wafting in the air from the Bronx to South Arlington. It's the smell of victory in the air. The Texas Rangers are on fire and be it not for one bad inning in three games, the Rangers would have a commanding 3-0 lead in the American League Division Series.
Cliff Lee performed like a micro-surgeon last night and surgically removed any momentum the New York Yankees gained at any point during last nights convincing win in the Bronx. And our young closer, Neftali Feliz slammed the door shut as he fanned two out of the three remaining Yanks.
All of the sports journalists, nay-sayers and doubters in baseball are now taking a good look at these once hapless Rangers. They ain't hapless no more my friend.
But, just like in game one, "it ain't over, 'til it's over", after all, these are the World Champion Yankees, but the Rangers have the taste of Yankee blood in the Bronx now and they're gonna go down swingin', literally. I say the Rangers take it all, in six games, in Arlington.
