The Texas Rangers have slumped into six straight disappointing losses. They’ve dug themselves deeper and deeper, and they’re on the verge of being buried. In other words, their season is close to ending prematurely.
The Texas Rangers are 27-43, and they’re at least seven games behind the fourth-place Oakland Athletics. Right to now, to say that the team is a mess would be a significant understatement.
At the moment, there’s no momentum, no concentration, and no motivation. The problem is the fact that the team allowed themselves to lose all those qualities and dig themselves deeper and deeper in the hole they’ve dug themselves in.
We’re not halfway through the season yet, but time is running out. The Rangers can’t continue to win a few games then go on a major losing streak.

That’s not the path that leads to the playoffs. On the contrary, it leads to a premature ending of a season, leaving a lot of doubts for the team’s future.
To end a season prematurely is humiliating for the Rangers. It makes all hard work during season preparation all for nothing. So the Rangers need to avoid it. But the time is now. There’s no more time to waste.
The Rangers begin a three-game series tonight against the Colorado Rockies. They need to win this series and bring positivity back to the clubhouse. The Rangers need to regroup, make a game plan, put the plan into action, and get the job done.
They need to play as a team: Pitching does their part, and so does the batting lineup. Everyone needs to get on the same page and trust one another. Team chemistry makes an impact, and they know that.
If the Texas Rangers can manage to sweep the Rockies, it’ll give them so hope as they then begin a road trip with the first stop being in Kansas City. The Rangers can’t afford to mess around anymore.
