Well, this is pretty harsh...the Fox Sports Power Rankings currently have the Rangers 27th.
They are behind the Washington Nationals, who won 59 games last year.
And the Baltimore Orioles, who were 11 games worse than the Rangers last year.
And the Colorado Rockies, who won 74 games last year, are an N.L. team anyway, and lost Matt Holliday and Brian Fuentes.
And the Royals, who, according to the author, had a "nice offseason" because they got Mike Jacobs to play first base and acquired Coco Crisp to displace David Dejesus from center.
27th doesn't seem all that reasonable, to me...
