They made three straight postseason appearances, including two straight division titles and World Series appearances. Last season, Texas fell short of a second straight wild-card berth after losing to the Tampa Bay Rays.
What is to come over the next three years? Can the Rangers continue to push for division titles and world championships?
The answer is yes.
Texas has become a contender, especially playing in a relatively soft division. Free agents are going to find Arlington much more appealing as the years roll on.
So far, the team has made one major splash in the offseason, acquiring Prince Fielder from the Tigers for Ian Kinsler. The Rangers also re-signed catcher Geovany Soto, signed catcher J.P. Arencibia and traded outfielder Craig Gentry to Oakland for another outfielder, Michael Choice.
Let’s look ahead and predict the next three seasons for the Rangers. Each season will include possible trades and free-agent acquisitions, as well as season outcomes.
