The Texas Rangers have experienced high peaks and low valleys this season

Texas Rangers Valley: No-hit by Corey Kluber
If you thought one no-hitter was bad, how about two?
And if that’s not bad enough, what if that no-hitter was thrown by a pitcher who used to be a Ranger but only wound up tossing one inning in that uniform?
That would be Corey Kluber’s nine-inning masterpiece against the Rangers in his Globe Life Field return with the New York Yankees.
It doesn’t get much more insulting than that.
The Rangers have joined the Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners as the three baseball clubs to be no-hit twice by opponents this season, not a group you want to be a part of.
Such is the case when you’re rebuilding, though.
There’s a lot that I left out, and much more still yet to come, but that’s the point of this piece: to illustrate just how much has already happened for a team that wasn’t supposed to be all that exciting entering the 2021 season.
