The Rangers have accomplished a lot in the 50-plus years the team has been in existence. Founded in 1961 as the Washington Senators, the franchise relocated to Arlington, Texas 11 years later where they became the Rangers — the team we know of today. The Rangers have never won a World Series championship but came close twice when the club reached the final in 2010 and again in 2011. Ron Washington guided the Rangers to an impressive 90-7 record in 2010 before the club lost in the World Series to the San Francisco Giants.
With much of the same roster, the Rangers again in 2011 — only this time the club dropped a seven-game thriller to the St. Louis Cardinals.
In total, the Rangers have captured two AL Pennants, and seven West Division titles — its last coming in 2016.
Juan Gonzalez was a threat every time the power hitter stepped to the plate. The former slugger played 13 seasons with the Rangers and still holds the club record for most home runs with 372. Michael Young was also the face of the Rangers franchise as the former shortstop collected a club record 2,230 hits over his career in Texas. Pitching great Charlie Hough holds the record for most team victories with 139 overall.

How To Win At Texas Rangers Betting
There were high expectations pinned on the Texas Rangers after the club won back-to-back West Division titles in 2015 and 2016. However the club failed to get past the Toronto Blue Jays twice in the ALDS, getting swept in three straight games during the 2016 post-season.
Offense has certainly not been the issue for the Rangers, who ranked seventh overall in hits in the American League in 2016. That same season, the club hammered 215 home runs and 746 runs batted in — both good enough to put the Rangers top 5 in both categories. Even on the mound the Rangers were dominant — posting an AL third-best ERA of 4.37 and 84 quality starts along the way.
With a triple threat of Yu Darvish, Cole Hamels and A.J. Griffin, the Rangers still boast one of the best starting pitching rotations in baseball. However the duo of Hamels and Darvish couldn’t get it right in the 2016 post-season, posting ERAs of 16.20 and 9.00, respectively.
If the Rangers can get things together in the playoffs, the club is considered to be a legitimate contender for a World Series. Until then, they’ll just be one of the best regular season teams in Major League Baseball.
