At this point, we are all tired about hearing of the Texas Rangers struggles. Yes, they have had numerous problems this year. Yes, the Rangers are tied with the Indians for the third worst record in baseball. We all know this.
So, with that out of the way, let us see what the Rangers can do to fix these issues. Obviously, the myriad of injuries certainly hurts, and attaching Nolan Ryan‘s rubber arm to Yu Darvish is not realistic. So, ignoring sudden medical miracles and some bizarre Frankenstein experimentation, let us figure out ways to improve the Rangers fortunes this season.
Quite frankly, for as bad as the Texas Rangers have looked at times, they should not be nearly this bad. There is a lot more talent on the roster than the record would indicate – it is merely a matter of getting the team to play to that potential.
What follows are the series of moves that I would make if I was running the Texas Rangers. Naturally, I have done my best to attempt to remain realistic, so a trade of Shin-Soo Choo for Mike Trout is not in the cards. However, that does not mean that change would not be forthcoming.
Let us know what you think of these ideas to improve the Rangers fortunes this season. Likewise, let us know what moves you would look to make in order to give the Rangers a chance at righting the ship this season.
Next: Let's make a deal!
