No I'm talking about prior to last season. 05 to 08 they were near the bottom in pitching and 09 to 12 they were middle of the road. Their offense was always good and in top-5 in baseball. Even last season they were just outside of top-5. They lost Cruz and decide to bring in Fielder and Choo. Trading for someone like David Price would've made much more sense even if it costs you Profar. Price too expensive? Fine, instead of eating most of Fielder's salary it would've made more sense to trade for someone like Cliff Lee. Lee is on the block however Phillies want the other team to eat large chunk of the salary. A guy like Lee would make Rangers much more dangerous than a guy like Fielder.
They'll be a good team again but watch them fall short. Again.
