Another Rangers Mailbag awaits your questions and comments this week as the Rangers complete a four-series swing against the American League East. Two more series against East teams will be played after this road trip: at Toronto, Sept. 6-9, and vs. New York, Sept. 10-12.
The Rangers have been inconsistent against the East, playing well at times and downright poorly at other times. It appears all but certain that New York or Tampa Bay will be the Rangers' first-round playoff opponent, assuming the Rangers get to the postseason for the first time since 1999. Their lead is eight in the AL West with 45 games remaining for them and third-place Oakland, and 43 left for second-place Los Angeles.
Please send any questions/comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please include your hometown with your name.
