Everything’s bigger in Texas

Over 162 games, there are times when the schedule makers seem to conspire against a team. Then there are times like this, when certain series are a gift.

The Yankees are 16-5 against the Rangers over the last three seasons, 9-1 in Texas. In fact, they have won 11 of their last 12 games played at Rangers Ballpark (which is what they’re calling it these days) and have scored 72 runs in those games.

Then there’s Alex Rodriguez. They boo him here like he is Santa Anna. Then he makes them pay for it. In 16 games at Rangers Ballpark since being traded to the Yankees, A-Rod is at .349/.446/.556 with three homers and 10 RBI.

Meanwhile Tom Hicks is paying $10 million of his salary. That can’t make watching the games any fun.
