With the Giants win over the Braves last night, we’re down to our last game of the Division Series: a game-five elimination between the Rangers and Rays. I don’t really know who I’m rooting for here, but I feel pretty confident I’ll be happy for whoever wins. The fact that they’ll then have to go and beat the Yankees only makes it better.
I have to say that the Rangers probably have the advantage, though, with Cliff Lee getting the start.
Tonight’s tater trots should be posted shortly after they occur in the game. Be sure to check back often. And follow me on Twitter for other thoughts about tonight’s game.

Rangers vs. Rays
Ian Kinsler, Texas Rangers – 22.44 seconds (Season average: 22.82 seconds): I was beginning to think I wouldn’t have anything to time tonight, but then Kinsler went and gave the Rangers two very important insurance runs. He wasn’t all that obviously thrilled about it, though… his trot was almost indistinguishable from his average trot over the summer.
