People sometimes may not talk enough about Alex Rios. If you look back to September, he had one of the best bats for the Rangers. Especially when everyone else on the team was struggling. If you remember, September 1 to about the 22th was some pretty bad baseball for the Rangers. Luckily, during that stretch they managed to win a few games, but they only had a record of 5-15. Which put them on a pace for the worst month in franchise history. But the tides turned once the Astros came into town and they won 7 in a row and force a game 163. And for that, you can thank Alex Rios. He had a batting line of 291/.325/.509/.834 with 5 home runs and 19 RBI. Some are saying they miss Nelson Cruz, but lets see what Rios is able to do over a full year.
