Ace – Ferguson Jenkins
2 – Nolan Ryan
3 – Kenny Rogers
4 – Kevin Brown
5 – Charlie Hough
Breakdown – Many would probably think I’m crazy putting someone over Ryan, but if you’re going for the better pitcher while in Texas, you’d go with Jenkins. Ryan is always going to be a fan favorite and even with the 2 no-hitters in a Rangers uniform, he couldn’t match the peak that Jenkins put up in Texas at a season stat line of 25-12 and an ERA of 2.82, and finished with the most wins in a season in Rangers history along with the highest season WAR by a pitcher in Rangers history. Rounding out the order is Kenny Rogers, Kevin Brown, and Charlie Hough. All of which had very strong showings in their time in Texas.
Runner up – Colby Lewis, Yu Darvish, Cole Hamels, Cj Wilson. I almost put Lewis into the top 5, after all, he was the best playoff performer in Rangers history. As for Darvish’s case, he was fantastic early in his career, but he didn’t really have much longevity.
Pitchers- Neftali Feliz, John Wetteland, Fransisco Cordero
Breakdown- This gives you 3 of the best closers the Rangers have ever had. Each of which put up massive numbers at some point in their careers for the Rangers.
