The Texas Rangers had an explosive offense when you look at the big picture.
Texas ranked among baseball's best in all the sexy offensive categories batting average, home runs, runs scored, total bases. But if you looked at the individual players, those numbers didn't seem to add up all the time. The Rangers were also poor at situational hitting; failing to advance runners and getting them home from third with less than two outs.
And as good as the club was defensively; statistically one of the best seasons in franchise history, there were also some glaring areas for concern.
Here are the grades for the individual players. My grading system is simple. A's go to those who had excellent seasons, B's to those who were above average, C's to those who were average, D's to those below average and F's to those either need to give back the money they were overpaid or find a new city to play in.
