Operation “Get Chris Smith a Win”

MLB: Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

I’m going to keep this short and sweet.

GET CHRIS SMITH HIS FIRST MAJOR LEAGUE WIN AS A STARTER

I don’t want to see Santiago Casilla anywhere near this game. Seriously, he better be yukking it up down in San Diego or something. Get him some Sea World tickets. I’ve written two recaps where he blew a win for Smith and I will absolutely lose it if that happens again. Chris Smith deserves better.

On the offense side, our guys just need to put a few runs up against righty Troy Scribner, making his fourth major league start.

Spoil the Angels. Get Chris Smith a win. Simple.
