Behold the new Elvis Jabberdog Brownie

The Rangers are playoff-bound and have some aggressive food items for the postseason. This is a 2-foot brownie rolled in Rice Krispies crust, dipped in funnel cake batter and fried. It costs $26 and is presumably named after SS Elvis Andrus -- not Presley, though the singer might have approved.

An all-time comeback for Texas

The Rangers overcame an eight-game deficit in the AL West in early August to win the division. Only four teams in the last 40 years have come back from a bigger hole in that same time frame (Elias).

Tim MacMahon ESPN Staff Writer 

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle called the job first-year Rangers manager Jeff Bannister has done guiding Texas' worst-to-first turnaround in the AL West "absolutely tremendous." Added Carlisle: "I can’t help but feel great for the Rangers, but Jeff Bannister’s story is a very compelling one. He came in as a guy who was given an opportunity and Jon Daniels had a hunch about him. They had the tough start early, but Jeff’s a guy that’s an energetic believer. He kept those guys going. It’s been remarkable, and they have a real chance."
