External expectations for the Texas Rangers in 2021 are low, however, this is a young and hungry team with a chip on their shoulder ready to prove the naysayers wrong

The Rangers are young and inexperienced, which means it is difficult to quantify realistic expectations, so if you look at our predictions for the upcoming Rangers season, you will see some major differences

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter how the Rangers finish this year in the overall standings. There’s something much bigger at work here. It’s about the youth of this team, as it should be. Rangers management has broken ties with the past No Elvis More No more rougie The point is to enlarge this group

There’s still a lot left to prove, however, looking up and down the 40-man roster, there are plenty of unrecognizable names paired with inexperience.Even the seasoned players have questions that need to be answered

The biggest problem for this team is pitching I think a full season with fans in attendance will help improve the ship offensively for key players like Joey Gallo, but the Rangers lack a staff that can deliver innings to it not because they’re not talented Kyle Cody, Dane Dunning, and Taylor Hearn could all go into rotation for 2022, but they’ll be capped this year to maintain their long-term health

A lack of innings by the pitching staff is hard to sustain for a six month season.On the other hand, I believe this team is more talented and deeper than many trust them. Physical limitations will be the main reason why this team is in 2021 can not compete

The smart 2021 forecast for our Texas Rangers is fifth in AL West, and some shrewd Alec might suggest they would finish lower if it were legal to do so

But I think those of us who are either affiliated here or want to be affiliated come into this season with an understanding: This is about “evolution” that goes for a brand new first year general manager and a manager who learns in the workplace

You can be “pissed” about the offensive expectations But that won’t last. What has to have a long-term effect here is a “Rangers Way” developed by Young and Woodward, which is far more important than this team’s record in this single season

After a memorable 2020 and the longest, dire rebuilding project in franchise history, the Rangers could be the least known and least successful roster in the Arlington team’s 50 years in 2021

Not much is expected of the Rangers this season as they start 2021 with a rotation led by Kyle Gibson and the face of the franchise is a player who hasn’t finished a full season in consistent results in Joey Gallo

There’s plenty of room for optimism, however, as younger players in the system can get a shot in the majors and the franchise can take an expanded look at the potential future, if the cards fall just right, this Rangers team can potentially pull out a 500 It’s far more likely, however, that this team will outperform just enough to break the 75-win hump and finish fifth in the AL West

I delved into Rangers history for our daily play “On This Day,” and the worst record in Rangers history belongs to the team with 54 wins in 1972 that did so in 154 games in the following Season, 1973, Rangers took 57 first season wins with 162 games. It wouldn’t surprise me if this group questioned that record

This is basically a stud rebuild, and the only significant advantage they have, outfielder Joey Gallo, could be trade bait in July (the Rangers only have control of his rights until 2022) This team would have to far exceed their skills and experience to be competitive this year

Depressing for fans? Yes, but ultimately I think they’ll win 62 games and the critical young players who could be the future of this franchise will get a ton of game time by August
