Bartolo Buchholz.

Cha Seung Clemens.

Grover Cleveland Gaudin.

And Cy Snell.

A quick deficit, more terrible defense, and yet another game in which the other team — a pretty bad team, in this case — buried Texas early and never let them back in it.

Texas is getting outscored in the first inning this season by 30 runs (50-20).

Texas is also getting outscored in the second inning by 30 runs (53-23).

In innings three through nine, the Rangers aren’t so bad. The opposition is outscoring them, 277-274.

What does that mean?

It means the bullpen has been a lot better than the rotation, obviously.

And it means a lot of nights that are hard to watch.

Watching the postgame interviews, I thought the manager and the players seemed extremely depressed. Hard to blame them.
