Randy’s Pick

The Rangers turned their season around last week and should be looking at this series as a chance to close in on a division title. The Angels threw in the towel on the season a little over a month ago, and there's no interest in getting a win here. The Angels are eyeing vacation. Even without knowing who the pitcher is going to be for the Rangers, the offense should be able to carry them to a seventh straight win as they inch closer to an AL West crown. Give me the Rangers and whatever the price is.
