4. TEXAS RANGERS

For the fist time in franchise history, the Texas Rangers won the World Series. This was a major accomplishment for the team and after spending a lot to make that happen, it was a no-brainer that they'd make an effort to repeat right?

Texas had a loaded lineup last season, but if there was an issue that was in the rotation and the bullpen. Naturally, they hardly did anything to address those issues. As of this writing, postseason hero SP Jordan Montgomery is still a free agent. They seem to have move don from him however, by signing...Tyler Mahle. Um. What? It gets worse, their rotation looks downright awful going into the season. The top starters are out until at least mid-season and so is Mahle himself.

What did Texas do to address their bullpen? They signed David Robertson for a year, after he posted a 5.06 ERA for The Fish in the second half of the 2023 season. I find it hard to believe that the 38 year old has much left in the tank. Considering their bullpen was shaky to begin with, this is an eyebrow raising move. This is not the way to follow up a World Series win, though it's still better than the 1997 Florida Marlins selling the team ff.
