If this were a year that Texas Rangers have come to expect, they would have been preparing for Game 2 of the American League Division Series Monday at Rangers Ballpark.Instead, the Rangers are watching the game if they want and still licking their wounds after a season that started with so much promise went so wrong.But the Rangers won't be able to sulk for long as they have plenty of questions to answer before they can try to make another playoff run in 2013. Here are a six pack of them that need to be answered.1. What happens with Josh Hamilton? The good news for the Rangers is that this isn't a question they really have to answer. The answer to this one will come when another team decides to spend big money on a player with immense baseball talent and just as immense non-baseball issues. If the questions about Hamilton just centered on baseball, the Rangers may have considered trying to match whatever offer Hamilton will get. But as good as he's been on the field for ...

  • The Rangers need to answer these questions too. They left RISP this year too frequently, couldn't get that third out efficiently, attitudes of Hamilton, Oganda, Moreland,Kinsler all seemed indifferent. They didn't play with enthusiasm. One rotten apple spoils the entire barrel, send Hamilton on his way. Play some of younger players early in season they at least want to be there.
