TTY (whatever that means) as far as Texas Rangers’ Division Series Opponents

October 6, 2016

The American League top seed Texas Rangers begin their 7th division series, hosting the Toronto Blue Jays in game 1, beginning at 4:30 P.M. Eastern time.

It is the second straight season in which the teams are clashing in the division series. Toronto won the decisive 5th game at home last year after the visiting team won each of the first four games.

Texas is a miserable (1-9) in home division series games, (1-10) in pre LCS home games, having lost at home to the Orioles in the first A.L. “play in” game in 2012.

The Rangers are (2-4) in previous division series winning vs Tampa (Bay Rays) in both 2010 and 2011 en route to World Series losses in both years.

The “Y” in the “TTY,” the New York “Y”ankees. The Yankees en route to World Series wins in each of those seasons beat Texas in the division series in 1996, 1998 and 1999.

Texas won game 1 of the first such series in 1996 and the Yankees went (9-0) vs Texas in those 3 series, (6-0) in Texas after that game.
