Soon, the Rangers will be commencing upon their 50th opening day since coming to Texas.
50 years of playing baseball under the Texas sun(Or roof nowadays) and every year, Rangers fans have valiantly stood by their team through thick and thin. However, this year looks to be one Texas Rangers fans get rewarded for their patience.
Excitement has begun to burst at the seams for this ball club, as the Rangers are swiftly approaching the back end of a rebuild. One that has led to multiple seasons of disappointment, and quite frankly poor play, albeit even though the poor play was because of tanking for draft capital.
Although, this has been the aura surrounding the Rangers of recent years, times certainly are changing in Arlington, TX, as the Rangers not only went on a spending spree totaling over $500 million with the commitments to Seager, Semien, Gray, Calhoun, and company; they are also a team full of young talent ready to contribute, either this year or very soon. By finally doling out money, this ownership has shown confidence in this teams ability to finally compete, and a competitive baseball team means a very fun year for all of the much deserving Ranger fans who had to sit through these past few rough seasons.
So, as the Texas Rangers embark on this season it is time to take a look at who will possibly be in the lineup donning red, white, and blue on April 8th in Canada.
