Rangers Doomed Themselves With Cruz' Suspension

Nelson CruzThe following two sentences, spoken by Texas Rangers manager Jon Daniels to USA Today, are undeniably true.

Wed be in better shape if he wasnt suspended. Its a choice Nelson made.

Well, its not as if the Rangers were blind-sided by Cruzs suspension, which was more than six months in the making. And its not as if the absence of Cruz is the only reason that the Rangers trail the Cleveland Indians by 1 games for the second AL wild card with seven games to play.

The Rangers should have put the pieces together, should have known that Cruz might be in big trouble, should have known that they were facing a potential mess.

If they want to point the finger at Cruz, fine, he deserves it. But they should also point it at themselves.
