Swish, swish ya'll!

Oh, that sound?  That was my version of a broom sweeping.  To be more specific, it was the broom that my Rangers used in their season opener series to sa-WEEP the Boston Red Sox at home.  A. Maze. Ing.  This makes me FURIOUSLY HAPPY ya'll.  Why is this a big deal?  
They still have pitching.  Even without Cliff Lee, the Rangers managed to prove that they still have pitching. Remember Wilson and Lewis?  They didn't disappoint as they opened Games 1 and 2 of the season, and bringing up the end of the rotation this weekend was lefty Matt Harrison.  With massive amounts of confidence from our man Washington, Harrison muscled all the way through a bases loaded seventh inning to prove that he's serious about his place in the rotation.  Lee?  Lee who?  Lee can suck it.

They can hit hard.  We know this, yes, but it never gets old.  In 3 games they cranked out 11 home runs and 21 base hits on top of that.  Kinsler and Cruz homered in all three games folks.  Fun fact: The BoSox haven't had that kind of power hitting treatment rained on them since 1919.

This is exciting and I really wanted to remember it.  So Dear Future Self, Remember this.
