Game 105: Phelps v. Darvish

A year ago today, the Rangers were 56-49, a scant 1.5 games out of the playoff race, and the Yankees were a game behind them at 55-50. Flash forward to today, and the Yankees are in a similar position – a game out of the Wild Card race, standing at 54-50. The Rangers, on the other hand, have the worst record in baseball at 41-64 (as well as the worst run differential in the game, at a staggering -119).

Forgive the cliche … but sometimes you really can’t predict baseball.

While you’re waiting for the game to begin, head on over here and leave us a question for our next podcast.
