  1. Mike S. says:

    You will get to the ugly offensive stats yourself.

    Other than the 5-run comeback inning in Game 1, and 2 Cano HRs, the offense has done nothing this series so far.

    Just for the record, Swisher is 4 for 40 against Texas this season (including ALCS) and Teixeira 4 for 36. Wow.

    …and I wonder…if the worst case scenario happens, and it happens in less than 7 games, could this have been Andy's final game? He has been considering retirement after each of the past few seasons.
