50. 2002: 72-90, fourth place

There were Rangers teams that had worse records, but no team had a roster quite like this one. The Rangers were in desperate need of a complete overhaul. Instead, they tried to win in general manager John Hart’s first year with a ridiculous cast of characters to support shortstop Alex Rodriguez. John Rocker and Hideki Irabu as your closer? Manager Jerry Narron was right when he said after getting fired, “T.R … I got screwed.”
