Rangers Doomed Themselves With Cruz’ Suspension

“We’d be in better shape if he wasn’t suspended. It’s a choice Nelson made.”
Well, it’s not as if the Rangers were blind-sided by Cruz’s suspension, which was more than six months in the making. And it’s not as if the absence of Cruz is the only reason that the Rangers trail the Cleveland Indians by 1½ 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.
