The above shot of Rangers right fielder Nelson “Nellie” (that’s really his nickname) Cruz — who’s hit a record-tying eight home runs in the postseason but probably should have made the final out Thursday night — was part of Sports Illustrated’s The Body Issue in 2009. And the below shot of Rangers ace C.J. Wilson — who very well might see action in Game 7 tonight — has been floating around on Facebook in recent days, though I’m still unsure of its origin. Meanwhile, today’s quote of the day comes from gay blogger Jim Buzinski at OutSports in his Game 6 recap: “I wonder if former Rangers owner George W. Bush prematurely hung a ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner with two outs in the ninth.” Just ouch. But for the record, if the Rangers lose tonight, you can’t say this post jinxed them. That honor has already been reserved for Fox 4.
