    The Rangers in the World Series?  

    Baseball writer Jesse Spector thinks so.  If you are a Rangers fan states the Fall Classic would start in Arlington October 25th.

    The Sporting News says the Rangers are favorites to win the 2016 World Series.  It is a good stoy and worth reading. 

    He writes: 

    The Rangers have the best record in the American League, and the second-best record in the major leagues behind the Cubs. Texas has won 15 of 25 games since the trade deadline, a .600 clip with the basic roster that the first-place team in the AL West will take into October.

    These facts alone certify the Rangers as a contender to win the World Series for the first time in their history. Then there’s this: Texas is 54-27 against teams with winning records — more wins against good teams than the Braves or Twins have against all of baseball this year.
