The AL West-leading Texas Rangers are a good baseball team. And Rangers fans are good baseball fans. There's no denying either of those statements.

But given the sense of pride that most Texans have and their team's overall success this season and last, there's inevitably going to be some trash talking that goes on as the Sox and Rangers hook up for a four-game set in Arlington.

NESN Nation wanted to make sure that Red Sox Nation is ready to combat such verbal assaults, though.

So check out the video above in order to protect yourself, and feel free to use any of the comebacks as part of your arsenal.
