Words that start with f and actions that end with jail time spring to mind when thinking about last night’s painfully frustrating 8-5 loss to Oakland.

But as painfully frustrating as last night’s game was, to be honest, its outcome was inevitable before it even started.

The Rangers went into the game with a huge hole in their roster.

With Elvis Andrus serving his one-game suspension for Sunday’s Battle at the Ballpark, the Rangers’ Designated Gatorade Dumper was unavailable.

Andrus’s absence put the team in a real bind. You cannot win a game without a Gatorade Dumper.

Or a closer.
