Since this has been so fun the past two years, let’s count down.
With Sunday’s victory, the 2012 Texas Rangers squad enters the top 10 in franchise win totals. They tie the ’78, ’76, and ’09 squads with 87.
That’s what’s fun these days. Before the Ron Washington era, 87 wins was a big deal, but this team has 16 more games with a chance to improve on that total.
The next three wins will each move them up to 7th, 6th, and 4th, respectively, and a .625 winning percentage the rest of the way would give them a new franchise high water mark of 97.
