The front office of the Texas Rangers seems to have an idea that most of their fans should be pumped about this season. Instead of that being the case across the board, great deals of fans are upset at the added payroll the team picked up while losing Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers. I think all of that will fall by the wayside pretty early and here are five reasons why.
Rios was a good addition to the roster last season when he was traded for by the Rangers. That should only improve this year as he is a little more at home. While he could be a trade chip as well, I think the Rangers will be to heavy in the fight for the division to want to trade him. Look for a great season.
Beltre is one of the best third baseman in the game. Not only is it fun to watch him produce runs for this team; it is also a blast to see how much fun he usually has while doing it. That should be tripled this year with the addition of the team’s new first baseman who also enjoys a good time on the field.
Choo might have a fault here or there but over the course of a full MLB season he is a consistent source of offensive production. He might not compete for MVP but he will provide a lift offensively across the board every time he is in the game.
This is put up season for Profar. It should be a blast to see what has been a very good spring season translate into a great year as he takes over full time at second base. No one is going to make the fans forget about Kinsler but Profar deserves his place in the spotlight as well. I have a feeling he will earn it.

Fielder is going to be an awesome source of power this year just like he has been every single season he has played the game. Sure he might falter a bit when the postseason comes along but overall he will be a big bat that the Rangers need. I can’t make his salary go away but he will at least provide if all holds true to who he is.
