Predictions Are Fun!
Now seems an appropriate time to mention the last two sentences of my Rangers preview at The Batter's Box, March 18, 2005:
Texas did not adequately address last year's shortcomings in the offseason. They could win the division but will not, instead retreating to about 84 wins and a third-place finish.
Not a bold prediction, but that's the point. Texas had holes, didn't fill them, and in late July they find themselves hovering around the .500 mark. Eminently unshocking.
