CultureMap Dallas: Injury woes saddle Texas Rangers on opening day

Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish.

The Texas Rangers have become a trendy pick to win the American League and, by extension, play in what would be their third World Series in five years. The Sporting News picked the Rangers to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers and win their first title.

With the additions of Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo to an already potent roster, it wasn’t hard for national publications to hop on the bandwagon six weeks ago when spring training started.

But what about now, as the Rangers prepare for opening day against Philadelphia? That bandwagon has probably lost some passengers after what might qualify as the Rangers’ worst spring training in recent memory.

What went wrong? Well, how much time do you have?

In my latest story at CultureMap Dallas, I explore the litany of injuries and why all may not be lost.

Check out CultureMap Dallas for everything from breaking news to food, drink and society. It’s all there, including a local events calendar so you can see what’s hopping this weekend.

Until next time …
