Power Rankings
They went 15-13 in March/April and 14-12 in September. In between, they ... nah, we'll just move on.
Here's why baseball -- well, any sport for that matter -- is awesome. The 2014 season has been basically nothing but negativity for the Rangers and their fans, but Guilder Rodriguez getting his first major-league hit after 13 years in the minors was a heart-warming moment for Rangers fans. And good lord are they on fire overall.
The sweep of the Braves brought the Rangers' interleague record for the year 10-10. So there's that.
Happy Trails, Wash.
They've already lost more games than they did in any single season since 2007.
Shin-Soo Choo's deal is backloaded. He's set to make $21 million in 2019 and 2020, the latter of which will be his age-37 season. This doesn't seem like a good thing.
They've won just four series since the beginning of June.
Joey Gallo's only 20 and already has 100 minor-league homers in 1,003 at-bats.
Elvis Andrus begins an eight-year, $118 million contract next season. If he hit free agency, what are the chances he would get that?
Slice through all the crap -- and there's a lot of it -- and notice the year Adrian Beltre is having. Again. I look forward to many of you yelling at me when he retires and I say he's a Hall of Famer. Spoiler alert: I'll have better arguments.
