It’s a long season and anything can still happen. That being said, 2017, so far, is a lot more fun for Houston Astros fans and a much longer winding road for followers of the Texas Rangers, who now trail their Southeast Texas brethren by 15 full games¬† through their first 57 games that both clubs (Astros 41-16 and Rangers 26-31) each have played in the American League West this year to date.

As Astros fans, let’s just sit back and enjoy this dream season for as long as it lasts. Meanwhile, our deeply genuine thanks go out to Jeff Luhnow, A.J. Hinch, Jim Crane, and Reid Ryan, especially, for all they’ve each done to make it happen.

“Hello, there! I’m actor David Thewlis and I play the insanely sinister super villain V.M. Varga on the latest FX Network Series Version of Fargo. I’m not really Rangers manager Jeff Banister, but were I playing that fellow as the character I now portray on Fargo, there would be plenty of extra-legal things I could do to immediately help our Rangers club in the AL West. – I also sort of dashingly look and smile in ways that remind one of Jeff Banister too. …. Don’t you think?”
