we don't have the guys to play that style either.
To play that way effectively you have to be big, fast and skilled enough to take advantage of the turnovers you hope to create.
The Rangers bigger guys are slow as snails and lack the talent, creativity and finishing ability to play that way.
The guys that DO have the speed and talent to play that way lack the desire to engage consistently enough as if they are afraid to crack eggs or something.
we are a middling team consisting of a hodge podge of players with no one mindset of players capable of playing any one style effectively.
the best thing for this franchise is for someone to hit the re-set button and clear out everyone.
GM, all his staff, coach, minor league GM, his staff.
get someone in here with a plan from the bottom up.
It would be one thing if we sucked knowing we have help coming from the minors. But that team sucks as bad as we do, playing a style that is opposite to what the Rangers play now.
This org. is a clusterf**k right now
