The Texas Rangers have two games left to play this season. They’re not in the playoffs this year. They’ve lost their American League West title as well as the Silver Boot. Long story short, 2017 was a complete disaster for Texas. The injuries, the issues, etc. It was too much.

It’s a very tough pill for the Texas Rangers to swallow. Going from a team that was the best in the American League last year to mediocrity this year is a big blow to the gut for this ball club.

However, the Rangers need to do the right thing and move on. Win the last two games, finish the season and get ready for 2018. In other words, take it in stride, forget the past, and worry about the future.

The Rangers have two games remaining. Believe it or not, this series did give the Rangers something to fight for. Winning this series would allow the Rangers to avoid finishing this season at the bottom of the American League West standings.

The Rangers are 77-83. At the moment, their goal is to finish 79-83. The point is that there’s always something worth playing hard for in baseball. And the Rangers know that.

The Rangers gained a hard-fought 5-3 win last night. They need to do the same thing tonight and tomorrow. Andrew Cashner takes the mound for Texas tonight.

Unfortunately, even if the Rangers win their final two games, they’ll finish with their worst record since 2008. Regardless, there’s no reason for this club to not go out and play hard in the next 48 hours.
