I would suggest judge it the same way you would evaluate MLB players over a career, but consider their careers were only as long as the years and games they played with the Texas Rangers. Consider not just best seasons, but total contribution, and perhaps a bit of profile.

If there's anyone not on the ballot who you think should be considered as the 23rd to 25th best Ranger, please let me know in the comments.
