Speaking of the Rangers, I'd like to see where all those fans that said they couldn't beat the Angels are right now. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Teams that usually buy up the best talent typically lose chemistry together. It has proven true for the Yankees the past few years, and right now it is proving true for the Angels (who are worst in the division). Look at what Texas has done this season.
Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers
April 6- TEXAS 3, Chicago 2
April 7- Chicago 4, TEXAS 3
April 8- TEXAS 5, Chicago 0
Seattle Mariners at Texas Rangers
April 9- TEXAS 11, Seattle 5
April 10- TEXAS 1, Seattle 0
April 11- Seattle 4, TEXAS 3
April 12- TEXAS 5, Seattle 3
Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins
April 13- TEXAS 4, Minnesota 1
April 14- TEXAS 6, Minnesota 2
April 15- TEXAS 4, Minnesota 3
(First ever series win for Texas at Target Field. In fact Texas was 1-11 at Target Field going into this season. Texas swept the Twins in their only appearance to Target Field this year.)
Texas Rangers at Boston Red Sox
April 17- TEXAS 18, Boston 3
April 18- TEXAS 6, Boston 3
Texas has the best starting pitching ERA in the Majors at the moment. They also have the best relief pitching ERA. Josh Hamilton is leading the majors in OBP, and Mike Napoli and Josh Hamilton are both in the Top 10 in home runs (from the 4 and 7 spots most of the time).
Look at how dangerous the Rangers bullpen is. Alexi Ogando, Scott Feldman, Mark Lowe, and Mike Adams, 4 former starters, are anchors for a bullpen that closes with Joe Nathan. The Rangers might not have a true #1 starter, but what they do have is a group that outside of one bad game (Darvish's first start) hasn't given up more than 3 runs in a game. Colby Lewis, Derek Holland, Matt Harrison, Yu Darvish, and Neftali Feliz have been killer bees with their consistent solid pitching. Over 28 innings of work, the Rangers bullpen has only given up 2 walks. I realize it's early and that there will be some injuries that happen, but right now Texas truly looks like the best team in the entire Major League. I not only expect them to win their 3rd consecutive AL pennant, but at the moment I fully expect them to win the World Series (if they continue to play this way).
