The Texas Rangers in the All-Star game were 1-for-9 with a 13.50 ERA

BbUDP.St.58MLB's annual All-Star game was a bit of a bore, with the NL toying with Justin Verlander, etc.

The game was over in top of the first inning when the NL lead 5-0. So much for the Texas Rangers, or the AL, having home field advantage in the World Series.

The Rangers, collectively, were about as good as the rest of their AL teammates.

Batting
Ian Kinsler, 0-for-2. 0-for-1 with runners in scoring position
Josh Hamilton, 0-for-2. Grounded into one double play
Adrian Beltre, 0-for-2
Elvis Andrus, 0-for-1
Mike Napoli, 1-for-2. 1 strikeout

Pitching
Joe Nathan 1 ip. 8 pitches, 7 strikes
Matt Harrison 1 ip. 4 hits, 3 runs, 1 HR

I'm just happy the Rangers had a good time with smiles all around. The All-star game was a justly deserved reward for having such an awesome first half to the season.

Of course, "negative" people would say we're screwed. Again. World Series. 2nd place is "A,OK". Getting kind of used to it.

Don't have to win it all for the fans to "Love Me". Totally awesome. I am awesome...

Fortunately, I aren't negative.

Don't forget the lone hit came when Bryce Harper lost track of an easy fly ball. Ugly game last night, but everyone came out healthy. I blame the fact that the game was in Kansas City where no home team has been able to win in years.
