We started out with the news that Elvis Andrus, the very talented shortstop, signed a deal that will keep him here for another 5 years.
Yu Darvish, the young pitcher from Japan, had a perfect game going with 2 outs but lost it on a ground ball up the middle.
These two stories have something in common:
1) Darvish and Andrus are the future. Texas' management is once again demonstrating tha they will spend the money to keep core players.
2) Pitching and defense win championships. It's fun to watch 3-run homers but good pitching and a solid team up the middle is the right formula to win in October.
We congratulate the Rangers for keeping Andrus here and salute Darvish for an amazing pitching perfomance last night.
