Kidding...of course I remember. I wrote this, didn't I? Thank goodness for the quality baseball minds here at 162+ who told you guys to pull yourselves together...the season is long...we'll be okay..NOBODY FREAK OUT, etc. You remember it now, right?
And at that point, which was July 8th, our Texas Rangers were 14 games OVER and in 2nd place in the West by only HALF A GAME. Tsk, tsk, spoiled fans (including me...I was in a mini-panic..but don't tell anyone).
Well now I am here to do what any self-respecting baseball blogger would do: say I TOLD YOU SO. Haha. Okay...not exactly "I told you so". But let's just reinforce the "Nobody Freak Out" blog post by looking at this:
|Now that's a good lookin' ball club as of 8/27/13.|
|That DL stint due to high-five actually did happen, btw. That's why the guys do this after hits now.|
|Not the best defensive outfielder that ever was, but we'll definitely miss his boomstick.|
|One strikeout...ah, ah, ah...|
|Lucky for me, nobody reads your little TIME magazine. Or whatever it's called.|
|Utility guys don't get funny pictures or even nicknames really. Poor guy.|
|He's such a clown, but he's been dealin'.|
|What a ridiculous photo this is. And an organized team photo no less!|
