06:43 AM ET 07.07 | The Rangers -- losers of five straight -- still have the best offense in baseball -- statistically -- but they've hit their second significant lull in the last month. Texas has scored two runs or fewer in four of the past five games after a similar drought in early June. "We hit a funk," Ron Washington said. "And the only way we can come out of it we have to keep grinding and play our way through it."

Actually if they hit a funk it would be more than they are currently hitting.

He should close the locker room door and say "You think this is a Funk? Hell No... This is Funk"

and break out his Baseball card from the 70's and some Parliament-Funkadelic on vinyl.

RW is a great clubhouse manager but stinks at strategy most of the time. He is in a funk himself. Do something about it! Shake the lineup up and quit hoping if you keep everything exactly as is that it will get better. And for Pete (sorry Pete) sake get MY out of the #5 hole. 260 avg and 3 homers and hits #5!

Every team goes through these periods of not hitting,not scoring any runs, and bad pitching. Ron just remember that you are going to lose at least a third of your games every year, so don't worry it could be worst you could be managing the Rockies.
