Litmus Test: Failed?

By Jason K. Thompson

This weekend's series against the Yankees made me think "why aren't I writing for MavericksMix.com instead?

We (Rangers fans) had pretty much agreed that this current road trip would be a good test for our young ballclub to see where they're at. Well, they looked like they didn't even deserve to be on the same field as the Yankees. It was painful to watch. They couldn't hit, pitch, or catch the ball. I'm pretty sure the Yankees are better than the Rangers at every single position right now, except for right field, and maybe DH. But talent-wise, that's not the case. The Rangers just simply haven't gotten it going yet. And they have a long way to go to live up to their potential, and unless it magically starts clicking right now, we might have another ugly series on our hands this week. If I were Ron Washington, I'd be saying "God help us in Fenway."
