Fantasy Beat: Whither Napoli?

4

Jason Collette

The Josh Hamilton injury should have cleared up playing time for Mike Napoli (and even Chris Davis), but instead the pair rots on the bench. Jason discusses the why.

Raise your hand if you spent a high draft pick or high dollars on the reigning American League MVP this season. Now, keep your hand up if you have him in two leagues. Oh, you two? Good thing, as misery loves company. What is done is done, and the Rangers as well as fantasy owners will be without a key player for six to eight weeks, but the more pressing question is how the Rangers will adjust the at bats on the team, and how that will affect your own fantasy roster moves.

Following in the steps of looking at how the Giants' roster was constructed, now we look at how the Rangers were put together.

Now it’s time to focus on GM Jon Daniels and former (arguably current) flamethrower Nolan Ryan’s creation, the Texas Rangers. We’ll start here with the one of the most potent and powerful offenses in baseball:

Team Salary: $55 million
Average Salary: $1.9 million
Total Years of Control: 90
Average Age: 28.6

World Series Prospectus: Game Three Analysis

0

Christina Kahrl

The Rangers finally get on the board thanks to pitching and the timely hitting of Mitch Moreland.

One game might only mean ignominy deferred. It might only be the beginning of a replay of '87, reconfirming the convictions of those who want to invest everything in full faith and confidence in the benefits of home-field advantage. Heck, achieve that, and "the All-Star Game means something" might even win a few converts.

The Rangers win the first-ever Fall Classic game in the Metroplex to claw (and antler) their way back into the series.

ARLINGTON—Giants manager Bruce Bochy said earlier in the postseason that his team reminded him of the "The Dirty Dozen," a band of castoffs and misfits. The media has run with that and Bochy's line has been repeated over and over for two weeks.

It's a series that will feature superb pitching staffs, and one team will come away with a long-awaited title.

In baseball as in literature, archetypes tend to be formulaic, proof that fiction falls short of reality when it comes to the power to describe any one thing in shorthand. The need, indeed one of the great benefits of the human mind is to identify patterns, and to peg things that fall within those patterns, or to re-evaluate the pattern as a whole to create some new rubric, some new way of explaining things. Take our current post-season slate: instead of a much-anticipated rematch between the Evil Empire and the Phillies' a-bornin' senior-circuit dynasty, last week we got the pleasure of witnessing imperial ambitions utterly overthrown in both leagues.

Prospectus Q&A: Scott Servais

2

David Laurila

The Rangers' director of player development talks about some of the organization's top young players.

The Rangers are one win away from the World Series, and they wouldn’t be where they are without the contributions of young talent raised on the Texas farm. Several key players are homegrown, including a pair of 22-year-olds, Elvis Andrus and Neftali Feliz, who arrived via trade but blossomed under the watchful eye of Rangers director of player development Scott Servais. Servais talked about the club’s precocious youngsters, and the Texas youth movement, prior to Game Five.

Playoff Prospectus: ALCS Preview: Rangers vs. Yankees

Jay Jaffe

The Yankees look to get back to yet another World Series while the Rangers are in uncharted territory.

From 1996 through 1999, the Joe Torre-led Yankees and the Johnny Oates-piloted Rangers faced off in three American League Division Series, the first three times the latter franchise had ever reached the postseason. The Yankees won nine of those 10 games, holding the Rangers to a lone run apiece in their 1998 and 1999 sweeps. Times have changed, however, and while the Yankee machine has simply kept rolling, racking up four pennants and two world championships while missing the playoffs just once since their last meeting, the Rangers endured a dark decade before reemerging as AL West champions thanks to the shrewd deal making of general manager Jon Daniels and the fruits of their well-stocked farm system.
