The Astros are a game and a half back of the Texas Rangers this morning. I don’t think that anybody would have predicted the Rangers would have been atop the AL West at the end of the season.
The good news is that baseball is now popular in Texas. Yes I know it’s football season but they have two teams in their state battling it out to make the playoffs. The Rangers have won their last 4 while the Astros have lost their last 3.
