Going into the season, the Texas Rangers were in turmoil. The team's owner was bankrupt, the slow roll towards an auction was set in motion and adding salary did not seem to be an option. Most preseason indicators had the Los Angeles Angels winning the AL West -- six division titles in a row will earn you some respect.
Now, those same turmoil-laden Rangers have better than a 90 percent chance to make the playoffs.
Seems the only question left is: Can this be sustained?
