Pre-season rankings are starting to pour in, and here where David  Schoenfield of ESPN.com ranks the Texas Rangers, and why.

He has the Rangers as an 82-win team, mostly on the strength, or lack thereof, of their starting pitching.

Pretty hard to argue when you consider what the Rangers starting staff did in 2015. But, despite those shortcomings, the team did still win the West.

Anyway, pre-season predictions are like political promises: cheap and plentiful and rarely kept.
