If you measure it by RISP, it was the Twins last year, with one of the lowest HR totals.



Well, the Rangers scored 901 Runs last year.

I think they can make a legitimate run at the 31' Yankees AL record of 1067 in a season.

It's approximately only 1 more run per game. B-)

It's shocking but I don't have one ranger on my 3 fantasy teams. Unless you count Max Ramirez and Martin Perez in my dynasty farm system.

This might be understandable if it was a team like the Pirates (I only own John Grabow) but there are alot of good players in Texas.

Sorry to detract from your Cruz mania. You may continue.

Does the best offense matter when you have no pitching?

I love the Texas offense, but they need some pitching.

These posts are non fantasy related of course.

The term you are looking for is luckiest offense, the Twins were a below average offense that got a lot of luck last year.

I just saw the reply of Nelson's dinger tonight. It was an opposite field shot (right-center), and it didn't look like he got all the ball.

The dude has some power.

I think Cruz deserves a bump after his ridiculous tear. As much as fellow Ranger draft riser Chris Davis has busted thus far Nelson Cruz has delivered.

.294/.343/.575 (.918 ops) with 12 homeruns and 8 stolen bases a little over a quarter into the season? Very nice.
Hes finally hitting cleanup too.
