I agree they didn't score a ton last year but finished in the middle of the pack. There are no where near as bad as L.A./Detroit.

I've got concerns about them scoring runs. They lost Tejada and Hernandez and gotten zip in return. Runs will be hard to come by and Chavez can be pitched around unless they get a bat or two.

Trans makes a good point about losing the pitching coach, and let's not forget that they've lost their catcher as well.

I still think that the big 3 will be good for era/whip/k's, but there are a lot of negatives surrounding them right now.

I'd take all 3 in a hearbeat. They will win 3-1 instead of 5-1. the hitting will be good enough for them.

Yeah, well the Rangers will add several new starters. That doesn't mean that they will actually be good. 8-o

I still don't see a bat in Oakland except for Chavez. They need to get him someone to knock in and someone to protect him. ;-)
