The bad news is that the Rangers have lost 9 of the last 12. It was especially painful to watch them go 2-5 against the last place Twins!
The good news is that they are 54-36 with the best record in the AL.
Over the next 72 games, the Rangers will have to play better but I still like their chances a lot. After all, they can go 36-36 and still finish with 90 wins!
GM Daniels will likely make another July trade. My guess is that he will find a starter, such as San Diego's Drew Pomeranz who is 8-7 with a 2.47 ERA for 17 starts. He will also look for another bullpen arm, like Andrew Miller with the Yankees.
And let's not forget that a few guys are coming back soon: Yu Darvish, Keone Kela, and Derek Holland should be here in the next 2-3 weeks. Colby Lewis should be around Labor Day.
Of course, these trades will cost a lot but Texas has the depth to make those deals. In other words, we may see Joey Gallo, Ryan Rua or Juricson Profar wearing a Padre or Yankee uniform in a few weeks.
Nevertheless, it's been a great year and more fun is coming.
