Lone Star Ball On Rangers' Grueling Road

The Rangers sit atop the AL West standings on Memorial Day, with a record of 28-25 and a one-game lead over the Angels and just 1.5 over the A's and Mariners. As Adam Morris of Lone Star Ball chronicles, while this is the same record the 2010 Rangers held after 53 games, the road is about to get much tougher.

Texas plays 17 of their next 20 on the road, and their next 14 games are in a row. We have three games at Tampa, a likely playoff team, followed by four games in Cleveland against the Indians, who have been the best team in the A.L. so far this year. Then there are three games at home against Detroit, followed by four at Minnesota, an off day, three at the Yankees, and three at Atlanta.

Morris also notes the positive end of this gauntlet - Texas faces their easiest schedule stretch immediately afterward. See the entire commentary here.
