The Rangers can find run production anywhere in the lineup.
There is no easy out in the Rangers' lineup. Anyone can have a big night any night, sometimes on the same night. The addition of David Murphy as a regular has just made this lineup even more potent.
Yes, the Angels have one of the best rotations in baseball, and it is full of veteran arms, but the Rangers went 6-3 last season against the top of the Angels' rotation (Weaver, Harren and Santana).
What’s more than what they do at the plate, this lineup is deep when it comes to base runners. Kinsler, Andrus, Murphy, Cruz and Hamilton are capable of stealing bases and going first to third virtually anytime. Yorvit Torrealba even has a steal this season. That allows you to manufacture runs and means the bats don’t have to be hot every single night.
