There's still one more journey to take before the Rangers reach the biggest stage of all. And of course it was going to be the Yankees that stand on the tracks. The Rangers were never not going to face the New York Yankees in their first ever ALCS. And, frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way. I wouldn't be any less excited if it weren't the Yankees--and I'd probably be more hopeful of the Rangers chances if they were playing a surprise Detroit Tigers or Chicago White Sox team or some such--but in some ways, it would sort of feel like a letdown. ↵

I need Elvis versus Jeter. I want Feliz versus Rivera. I want to beat A-Rod and Teixeira. Hell, I want to beat the tool shed himself, Greg Golson. I desire vengeance for the late '90s Rangers. For Juan Gonzalez. For Johnny Oates. If there's a memorable trophy presented to the Rangers in these next few weeks, I want to see it hoisted in Yankee Stadium.
