Default Texas Rangers 2020 (and beyond?)

For anyone with a subscription to the Athletic, Adrian Beltre comes in at 52 in one writer's countdown of the top 100 players in MLB history.

Another nugget that's fun to read about - a recap of how and why Trout is the GOAT of the 2010's but their team has sucked.

I definitely agree.. Love Beltre but I'd have a hard time putting him that high. The reality was that he was only a good player throughout most of his career. Yes, he had a great 7 year stretch towards the end of his career.. I love Beltre. His WAR is extremely high.. this is obviously what gets him high on the list. However, he was rarely one of the best 2-3 players in the game at any point in his career. His greatness in large part is his long career. He played at a high level for 20 years. I guess it depends on what you value. A greater peak or more consistency over a long period of time..

2021 will mark the 5th year in a row the Rangers will miss the playoffs with no end in sight. You can make a solid argument that JD has been the worst GM in baseball since about 2015. The big league team is devoid of talent with no real assets to trade, and the farm system is bottom 5 in baseball with no real game changers on the way up. The rebuild should have started circa 2017 but JD and ownership tried to piecemeal a skinny rebuild which has failed miserably. At least ownership has a new tax subsidized stadium to enjoy.

Good thing I don’t have FSSW to watch how terrible they are. JD needs to go. Like already stated this team has no talent or young players in the farm system.

Is this the peak of the ranger's season, getting to .500 at 3-3?
at least they've cleaned out some of the old guard and made room to get some new blood.
