For Openers, Do Rangers Have a Closer?


Better late than never, it’s Opening Day for your Texas Rangers and I have two guarantees for the 2022 season: 1. They won’t lose 102 games; 2. They won’t score the fewest runs in the American League. Not sure about a pitching staff with Jon Gray as the ace and a combo platter of Matt Bush-Greg Holland-Joe Barlow as the closer. But I am certain that ownership’s half-a-billion-dollar investment in Corey Seager and Marcus Semien will provide more offense and fewer defeats. The Rangers hit only 167 homers in 2021; Semien hit 45.
