Your taking a very convenient stance but one that is really reaching.
I didn't even actually make a stance...just pointing out the standings. I have a distinct feeling many people here are not even aware how well Columbus is playing this year.

That said, as far as the Rangers are concerned there are a number of factors to be sure...on top of what you mentioned Hank is certainly not having the same kind of year he had last year, Girardi's game has deteriorated significantly, our forecheck has virtually disappeared, etc.

But I do think it's at the very least strange that Columbus would improve so much after losing the guy who was by far their best player.
