2023 is coming to a close on Sunday, and the Texas Rangers are going into 2024 as World Series Champions. It was a roller coaster of a season filled with ups and downs. There are many questions that the Rangers will need to answer going into the 2024 season. How will they deal with losing Jordan Montgomery if he decides to sign elsewhere? What will the bullpen look like at the beginning of the season? Let's look at some New Year's resolutions that the Rangers have on their list.

Texas Rangers New Year's Resolutions: 3. Compete until Jacob DeGrom and Max Scherzer come back

The first New Year's resolution that the Rangers have on their list is to compete in the American League until Jacob DeGrom and Max Scherzer are healthy again. I'm not worried about the Rangers' offense since they were the best in the American League last year. I'm concerned they will have a lackluster starting rotation to start the season, especially if Montgomery decides to sign with another team. This is one New Year's resolution that will not be resolved until the season starts in March and games are actually being played.

Texas Rangers New Year's Resolutions: 2. How to deal with the outfield issue

Another resolution that the Rangers have on their list is their outfield issue. It's not a terrible issue that the Rangers have with their outfield. The issue is, what if Wyatt Langford has an outstanding Spring Training and makes the team? The Rangers have Evan Carter, Leody Taveras, and Adolis Garcia as their starting outfield. The question will become how does Bochy make it work if Langford makes the Opening Day roster? That resolution will be solved by the end of Spring Training.

Texas Rangers New Year's Resolutions: 1. Create an elite bullpen

The number one resolution on the Rangers list is to complete an elite bullpen. Last year, the Rangers had so many issues with their bullpen that they had a closer by committee. The Rangers were lucky to win the World Series with the state of their bullpen in the playoffs. Josh Hader would be a massive addition to the bullpen but would force the Rangers to give up on re-signing Montgomery. The Rangers signed relief pitcher Diego Castillo to a minor-league deal the day after Christmas. He could also be a massive addition if he returns to his former self.

Texas Rangers New Year's Resolutions: Conclusion

All the New Year's resolutions on the Rangers list should be completed before the season. They have been quiet this offseason, and some fans on social media are concerned about next season. The Bally Sports TV deal going away really hurts the Rangers' shot of repeating as World Series Champions. There is still time to put together a competitive team for next season. If the Rangers can complete their New Year's resolutions, they can compete for the 2024 World Series.
