As Tim Keown explains in the current issue of ESPN The Magazine, the Texas Rangers appear to have finally figured out how to assemble a decent pitching staff. And on the surface, that's most certainly true. Texas has allowed the fewest runs in the American League, only one year after giving up the most in baseball.
Many have pinned the Rangers' improvement to a better pitching staff, but not all the credit rests on the mound. The team's defense has vastly improved as well.
