Watching the Texas Rangers the last several years—in particularly since Ron Washington has been skipper—can lead one to believe that the Rangers have always been denizens of "small ball" and have consistently fielded teams filled with speedy, five-tool type of players.
We've gotten spoiled by our current product.
I took it upon myself to do a little research, and to see if I could dig up some speedy players from years past. Some of these names you'll recognize, a couple of the names are actually on the team right now—but I suppressed the temptation to front load this list with current players, even though that could have legitimately been done.
So, here we go, Rangers fans, I bring you, not the Top 10 greatest power hitters of all-time (goodness, that would take until Opening Day 2012) nor the Top 10 Rangers' Playoff Teams (that would be tough, there's only been four), but I thrust upon you:
The Top 10 Fastest Players in Team History. Enjoy.
