I am quite perplexed on the thought process of the Texas Rangers this offseason. I mean, talk about resting on your laurel’s fellas!
This club was quite lucky to have run down the Houston Astros in 2015 when it did for the AL West. It took renaissance years from Shin-Soo Choo and Prince Fielder, and a hot Adrian Beltre over the last few months to get it done.
While I praised them big time for the addition of Cole Hamels at the Trade Dealine in 2015, I am giving them guff now for not surrounding him with ample playoff caliber pitching this winter.
Yu Darvish is a world class talent, but he is just coming back from Tommy John Surgery, and may take at least 6 weeks to begin the year.
Derek Holland is slated up high on your staff even though he has towed the hill just 13 games over the last 3 campaigns.
