Texas Rangers Franchise History:
The Texas Rangers were established as the Washington Senators in 1961 before moving to Texas in 1962. The franchise went nine seasons without a winning record and had to wait thirty-five years before they won their first American League West Division Title and qualified for the MLB playoffs. In the late 1990s the Rangers were the dominant franchise in the division but bowed out in the American League Division Series on three occasions. After another decade of mediocrity the Rangers returned to the playoffs in 2010 and went all the way to the World Series before losing to the San Francisco Giants. The Texans returned to the World Series in 2011 but again fell short losing to the St. Louis Cardinals despite twice being one strike away from the Championship. The Rangers current run of four winning seasons is the longest in franchise history.
Texas Rangers Offensive Star: Adrian Beltre
Adrian Beltre was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1994 at just fifteen years of age. Beltre made his Major League debut in 1998 and was the youngest player in the league. The third baseman developed into one of the Dodgers best hitters and in 2004 led the MLB in home runs and won a Silver Slugger Award. Beltre signed with the Seattle Mariners in 2005 and spent four, generally poor, season with the franchise. In 2010, he signed with the Boston Red Sox and found the form that had made him a star. He was selected for his first MLB All-Star game and won his second Silver Slugger Award. Beltre signed with the Texas Rangers in 2011 and played a key role in the franchises run to the American League Pennant. The thirty-three year-old has excelled at the Rangers and is now one of the most reliable veterans in Major League Baseball.
Texas Rangers Defensive Star: Yu Darvish
Yu Darvish joined the Texas Rangers in 2012 after an outstanding career in the Japanese Baseball League. Darvish’s Major League Baseball debut was heavily hyped but his start to the season was disappointing. However, as the season progressed he started to become accustomed to his new environment and his performances improved enough for him to be selected for the MLB All-Star game. Darvish should continue to improve in 2013 and put his name into the discussion as one of the elite pitchers in Major League Baseball.
Texas Rangers Manager: Ron Washington
Ron Washington spent ten years as a coach at the Oakland Athletics before being named manager of the Texas Rangers in 2007. After a tumultuous few seasons at the Rangers Washington led the franchise to their first American League West Division Title in over a decade. The Rangers went all the way to the World Series but to the San Francisco Giants. Washington led the franchise to their second straight World Series appearance but the side fell heartbreakingly short of winning their first World Championship. Washington is one of the most successful managers in Texas Rangers history and would dearly love to lead the franchise to their first World Championship in 2013.
