Texas Rangers Slump

The Texas Rangers embark on a lengthy road trip starting today. Sitting second to last in their division, the team is still struggling to find consistency. What is disappointing to see is that 3 former Rangers are the leaders in home runs in the AL. Beltre, Choo, and Fielder have a combined 15 home runs, and Nelson Cruz himself has 16. Josh Hamilton should be in the lineup here in the next couple of weeks, and lets hope the power that he used to have comes back. Texas has lost 4 of their last 6 games and you start to wonder if its not just getting enough runs, but maybe a combination of a pitching and hitting. With Mitch Moreland back and Hamilton on his way, lets hope this Rangers team has the firepower to get into the playoff race.
