NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — OCTOBER 7, 2006
Former Ranger pitchers Kenny Rogers, Chris Young, Justin Duchscherer, Chan Ho Park, Rudy Seanez, and Randy Flores are 2-0, 0.39 in the playoffs, giving up one (Duchscherer) run on 13 hits and five walks in 23 innings, and punching out 24 playoff hitters. Young’s scoreless 6.2 frames today may not have been as electrically charged as Rogers’s 7.2 last night, but statistically he might have been even better.
Sweet, sweet, sweet:
Thanks to the upstart Detroit Tigers, who got big contributions from four players that the Rangers got nothing in return for, those 25 Yankee cab rides are, today, 25 plane tickets. It is such a wonderful thing to see $200 million get bounced that forcefully.
