The Texas Rangers suffer yet another embarrassing series loss. The hole they’ve dug themselves in just got even deeper.
The Texas Rangers are 2-5 in their last seven games with an embarrassing 13-23 record. Even though it’s still too early in the season, playoff hopes are already beginning to wane.
Let’s face it; the Texas Rangers are far from being a successful team. They still lack a great deal of mentality. The ability to retain concentration has been down as we’ve seen the Texas Rangers jump to leads in games only to fall short at the end. There’s too much negativity within the club right now.
Truth be told, the series could have been a split had the Texas Rangers stayed focus in game three and not allowed Boston to come from behind. At the moment, the mentality is the most significant need for improvement.

The lack of mentality cannot be blamed on injuries that have been plaguing the Rangers this season. Truth be told, despite the injuries, the Rangers have had numerous chances to win games, but they couldn’t get it done.
Whatever the reason for the team’s woes, the Texas Rangers need to regroup, hold meetings, and get on the same page.
As said earlier, it may still be too early in the season, but time is already beginning to run out for the Texas Rangers. The ballclub’s got no time to waste. Changes need to happen quickly.
It’s unfortunate, with Bartolo Colon turning back the clock and the team showing glimpses of promise in the young season, thus far. But, they’ve been unable to put it together for long stretches in 2018.
The Texas Rangers begin a series tonight against the Detroit Tigers. The Texas Rangers need to turn things around and go on not only a winning streak but a series-winning streak.
