Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers doesn’t know what run support is so far in 2014 (and he was probably wondering what it was in 2013 as well). Yu Darvish has not had a run to back him up while he has been on the mound in three starts. The reason is the Texas Rangers seem to like to win in dramatic style so far in 2014. They are winning a lot of home games by the walk-off.

As great as the walk-off is, I am starting to tire of watching this team get behind because their offense can’t seem to score through the first six to eight innings or so, and as a fan, that is frustrating. When the Texas Rangers brought in players like Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo, the inpression that fans got was that the Texas Rangers were going to bring back the prolific offense that we all loved in years past, but through the first few weeks of the season, that just hasn’t happened. And Yu Darvish deserves better. He is our ace, and as our ace he needs to be treated better by this offense.

This team is becoming increasingly difficult to watch, and I hope it gets better, but don’t get me wrong, I still will watch, because I really enjoy watching Texas Rangers baseball. I feel like it is going to get better soon, but even if it doesn’t, I will still be watching, and I am sure that you will be as well. As exciting as walk-off wins are, I would like to the Texas Rangers beat the stew out of someone at some point. The way that they are pitching so far, a little offense and this team could be very dangerous.
