Who Is The Scapegoat If Rangers Choke Again?

washingtonWhether the Rangers would react more like the 2011 Red Sox or 2011 Braves if they miss the postseason is anyone’s guess. But the potential for internal strife is quite real.

Now imagine the Rangers losing the American League West to the Oakland Athletics and the AL wild cards to the Rays and Cleveland Indians — three teams with significantly lower payrolls.

Such an outcome could lead to a renewed power struggle between Ryan and general manager Jon Daniels and certainly would raise questions about the future of manager Ron Washington.
