Angels Scenarios And Rangers History

Here's where the 2010 Rangers team will place, in terms of wins, from each possible result in this final series of the season:

↵
    ↵
  • Rangers sweep getting to 92 wins, which puts them alone as the third winningest team in franchise history (and meets Nolan Ryan's stated pre-season expectations.
  • ↵
  • Rangers win the series 3-1, getting to 91 wins, which puts them alone as the third winningest team in franchise history.
  • ↵
  • Rangers split the series, getting to 90 wins, a nice round mile stone, typically considered the mark of a good season, and tying them with 1996 as the third winningest team in franchise history.
  • ↵
  • Angels win the series 3-1, getting the Rangers to 89 wins, tying 2004 for the most in the new millenium.
  • ↵
  • Angels sweep, and the Rangers' remain at 88 wins, tied with 1998 for the 5th most wins in franchise history.
  • ↵

I know the games aren't important at this point, other than playoff prep, but I'd really like to at least get to 90. It's purely aesthetic, but it gives me something to care about in these exhibition games.

Also, a win today would put the Rangers at at 11 games up in the division for the first time in the history of the team. That would also be cool.
