"You can tell just about any story you want to tell about the 2023 Rangers. It all comes together and they chase down the Astros to win the West. The pitching staff falls apart in a hail of injuries and the lineup makes too many outs, leaving them in fourth place. Something in between -- 70 good starts from the expensive guys, a much-improved bullpen, a quietly excellent defense, and 85 wins -- is my bet."
