The 2013 Texas Rangers season has come and gone. 91 wins later and it still wasn’t good enough for a playoff birth. 90+ wins for the fourth year in a row. A chance to get in the playoffs.
Then David Price happened.
Changes are coming in Arlington. There are several players who have played their last game in a Ranger uniform. There will new players next year to contribute to the Rangers and this incredible run that they are on.
I understand if you are upset or sad about the loss last night. Some of you live and die with every single pitch. I admire your fandom. The last game of the season is always a sad day. I too, am in a daze this morning coming to terms with the fact that this postseason has no team from Arlington.
But before we move on to contract talks, free agent possibilities or if Wash should or shouldn’t be fired, we need time for this to sink in. Time to grieve. Part of me is okay with the season being over. Not because the Rangers are no longer playing, but because the media onslaught is likely over. The Darvish not an ace/Profar isn’t that good/Fire JD talk will settle down a little.
But before we get into all of that stuff. I need a day to sit back and reflect on the season.
I’m still sad that it’s over.
