The Hardball Times with a State of the Rangers piece... 

A lengthy, well-thought-out piece at Hardball Times on the Rangers...

They aren't big fans of the direction the team is heading...

It's comforting to know that with this stuff around....I'll never run out of toilet paper.
You could do the same thing about every team. Baseball has so many statistical categories that you can find a few negatives about anyone. My favorite was their use of "batting average on balls in play."

As for my take on this year, I think they will fall just below .500 on the year. Last year wasn't supposed to be their year and they had too many things go right. This year things get back to reality although the young players will really mature and set the stage for a powerhouse team in 2006. Clearly they are poised to be better than most Ranger teams in the past but I wouldn't expect the same success as last year.
