Every team has their so-called “killers”, and the Texas Rangers are no exception to this rule.
It feels like each time one of these current MLB players faces off against the Rangers whether in Arlington or on the road, they always see the ball better. And it shouldn’t come as any coincidence that most of these players come from the AL West division, teams who see Texas frequently over the course of 162 games.
These four players, in particular, though, are extra annoying to Texas Rangers fans.
Texas Rangers fans hate to see these players kill their team time and time again
#1- Carlos Correa
This one was almost ironic, since the Rangers were at least pursuing Correa’s services in free agency.
Instead, Texas ended up with Corey Seager AND Marcus Semien. Not too shabby, eh?
I’m not denying that Correa wouldn’t have been a massive upgrade to this ballclub had the Rangers brought him in. But he does come with that cheater’s stain, and he’s just plain loathed by this fanbase.
The smug, entitled attitude. The clutch hits against the Rangers. Endless pain. This is Carlos Correa in a nutshell.
Just look at Correa’s numbers against the Rangers in 2021: an .894 OPS in 73 plate appearances to go with four long balls, his most against any team last season.
But you need not only look at 2021 to get the idea: Carlos Correa has been a Rangers tormentor for a long time. If he’s not going to come to Arlington, we would love to see him depart the AL West.
