The 2012 Rangers are not a perfect baseball team. There’s no such thing as a perfect baseball team. The 2012 Rangers aren’t even the 2001 Mariners, or the 1994 Mariners I took to a title in SEGA’s inaugural World Series Baseball. The 2012 Rangers have their flaws and their question marks. It’s just that they have fewer and less critical flaws and question marks than most other teams do. The Rangers went 96-66 a year ago and basically replaced one really good pitcher with another really good pitcher. Remember when we all thought the Cleveland Indians would become a perennial powerhouse? The Texas Rangers are that team.

It probably doesn’t hold much inside that you don’t already know — though it’s a good preview if you are out of the loop on the ’12 Rangers — but the real fun is reading a man that you know hates the team and wants them to lose say good things. Read it.
