I honestly don't feel like it handicaps the Rangers as much as people feel it is.
Speculating but maybe the Rangers already have a good idea of what their RFA's are at, maybe they have a trade in place involving Richards. This is the Rangers we're talking about, there are always things going on behind the scenes. I'd rather ride it out and see how it goes instead of jumping off the hill and feeling like the Rangers just killed themselves.
Even though I disagree with it, I admire your optimism. This team has stomach punched me so many times over the years that there is very little of that left in me.
