So the Rangers won tonight behind another sterling performance by Cliff Lee. Cliff's pitching and Josh Hamilton's first inning home run sunk Andy Pettitte. That and a ninth inning thumping of the Yanks bullpen to seal the deal. Very nice to see Texas come out and jump on the Yankees in New York to take a 2-1 lead in the ALCS.
To mark the occasion I am holding another contest. Mark "Money Man"Teixeira appears in this post on his 2004 Upper Deck Diamond Collection All-Star Lineup card. Tonight he was the last batter in the game as he struck out against Neftali Feliz to end the game.
Instead of picking a lineup all you have to do is pick the final Texas batter of the series. No matter who wins, you will if you can predict the final batter. Go ahead and throw in a prediction of what that Ranger will do in the final at bat. If you have the right batter and wrong result you still win, unless there is a tie. In the event of a tie the entry with the closest to correct result will win the contest. To enter just leave a comment on this post with your prediction. Still have at least two games in the series so get your entry in now. After all, It's time.
