It's the jitters. That's what it is.
The Rangers know how to play because it's October and they're still playing. The Rangers know how to win because they've done it plenty. The Rangers know how to turn apathetic lowlifes into Born-Again Ranger fans, because that's what they did for me. But, they have the jitters right now, and it shows.
They're in a new place, a new situation, they're in somebody else's house and don't feel comfortable "making themselves at home," and because of it they're down by two games. Down by two games in the World Series.
THE World Series!
The Rangers are in The World Series!
In my book, the Rangers have already won.
