Um, Do Your Texas Rangers Have Enough Offense to Be Taken Seriously?
What the what?
I was listening to the Texas Rangers Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays and I left them in what I thought was good shape.
Up 9-3 in the third inning. Rich Harden on the mound. Bats seemingly alive.
Then, yesterday afternoon, I got back around to sports and lo and behold the Rangers got swept in Canada. Swept?!
In the final 24 innings they were outscored 24-3. In in the last two games they struck out 23 times. They hit into four double plays and continued an ugly trend of leaving runners stranded.
I know the pitching is better and the defense is improving. But ...
as currently constituted do the Rangers have enough offense to win the American League west?
