As good a time as any...

to lose a series one game to two. Well, I'll give you what we can take away from the weekend series in a cursory fashion with a more detailed analysis hopefully later in the day.
1) Arlington gives even Cristian Guzman a power stroke--in all seriousness, I do hope he builds on this;
2) We should keep picking up Rangers' pitching cast-offs;
3) Everyone picked it up to avoid the sweep in a game that we could have easily lost on paper going in; and
4) Most importantly, we are still on track for coming out of this road-trip with a plus-.500 record and we actually GAINED ground or held tight against everyone except the Braves, against whom we only lost one game. We stayed even with the Marlins and Phillies, who also lost two of three this weekend, and gained a game on the Mets. And while losing a game to the NL West leading Padres, we even gained a game on the currently three potential wild-card teams outside our division, the Cubs, the Diamondbacks, and the Dodgers. All in all, I feel pretty good about things (which I am sure is helped by us winning the last game as opposed to winning the first and losing the last two).
