Opening a four-game series against the Mariners on Monday night, the Rangers should be out to prove they are still the class of the AL West.
Seattle has started the season off nicely with a 3-1 record, taking their opening series with Oakland.
Chone Figgins and Kyle Seager have gotten off to hot starts at the plate.
Figgins is batting .412 with four RBIs, finally showing off the bat the Mariners paid big bucks for after a terrible 2011 campaign.
Seager is one of the many young infielders the M's are hoping will have a big season and is batting .364 through the first four games.
With the exception of those two, the Mariners are known as one of the least impressive teams in the AL at the plate, as Darvish and Feliz should start the season off with an easy team to pitch to.
As to be expected, the media will be out in full force to see Darvish face off against fellow Japanese great Ichiro Suzuki.
