To prop up the tortured pun, Derek Holland's OPS against is .724. His OPS+ as a batter is -100. So if Ron Washington makes a terrible mistake with his lineup, causing Holland somehow to bat, the Rangers could be in trouble. Holland is the junior of the two starters tonight - and the more baby-faced - hailing for Newark, OH. Scherzer is from St. Louis - a fact we'll be hearing repeated ad naseum if the Tigers meet the Cardinals in the World Series. Of course, the Tigers will have to win tonight to make that even a possibility.
