If you need a reminder of how a manager can galvanize a team and what that can mean to a W-L record, look no further that the Texas Rangers. This team was written off by everyone, trust me, everyone, in May.
Now the Rangers are strong favorites to win the division.
And on the other side of the diamond the Tigers are bringing back Brad Ausmus.
Here’s a picture of Verlander in a Rangers hat.
Also, has anyone noticed what a slump Miggy is in? .202 with 0 HR and 8 RBI over the last month. This has been a trend…last few years it was the injuries. Hopefully he will still win the batting title.
