The Rangers are a fade, if anything, down the stretch. The worst part about the expanded Wild Card is that gross teams like the Rangers are still being talked about at this point in the season.
Cole Hamels is 9-1 though. He’s averaged about 6.5 innings a start and has a WHIP under 1.10.
He’s walked a lot and hasn’t struck out many, which are both no-no’s in today’s game but he’s one of these quality contact vets who have stuck around and are actually thriving because the game has gone so much the other way; they are taking advantage of guys looking to hit homers and walk.
Sean Manaea hasn’t had a bad season, either.
He’s hit a little bit of a wall, though. He only got through three innings against San Fran, was lifted in the fourth against the Angels and didn’t get as many as two batters out against the Orioles.
Those were four, three and two starts ago.
He was quality in his last outing in Houston, though.
I don’t like that trend but these are only the Rangers; Manaea should manage ok.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: under comes in by a run.
Could push the 9.0 too. It feels like a big number with Hamels set to throw well against this lineup.
