  11. Rangers have the sweet look of greatness

    David Schoenfield

    It's too early to call the Texas Rangers a great team, but it's also not too early to get excited by their 13-3 start. What's makes the Rangers impressive is they can beat you in so many ways. They even pulled out some small ball in the 11th inning t...
