It’s (Almost) Time!

I was perusing T.R. Sullivan’s Morning Nine from Surprise this afternoon and something occurred to me, something that actually reaffirmed another thing that I already knew.

Going into the spring this team looked very well put together. The big question marks of camp were who would play center field and who would take over Darren Oliver‘s role in the bullpen.

…and that was about it.

The Rangers didn’t start the spring with gaping holes that needed to be filled. It wasn’t like in years past where half-a-dozen pitchers were battling for two or three rotation spots. It’s been nothing like that at all.

With the exception of CF, lefty reliever, and utility infielder, this team has been ready since day 1. They are, without a doubt, the most complete Texas team to ever open a season.

Which they will do just 11 days from today.

Press on, Rangers fans.
