Ron Washington makes no apologies for schedule

Texas manager Ron Washington doesn't care that the Rangers 11-game winning streak has come against teams under .500. The Rangers still had to win those games. Here's Washington's take from his pre-game meeting with the media.

"Every team has a weak part of their schedule," he said. "If Anaheim right now was kicking butt the way we're kicking butt they'd be a great team. But since the Texas Rangers are doing it, it's weak opponents. They're a major league team. I didn't see Pittsburgh lie down in those three games we played them. I didn't Milwaukee lie down. I didn't see Florida lie down. We played better baseball than them, bottom line.
"Everybody's got a weak part of the schedule, so people say. I don't look at it like that. On any given night, any team can get beat. It's not the best team that wins, it's the team that plays the best. You can play the best team in the world. If you play better than them that night, does it make you better than them? That's the way we take it, one night at a time."
