Relative to what we’ve witnessed the past three seasons, and really the past six, the Rangers had a fantastic April.
They accomplished things they hadn’t done in quite some time, the biggest one being winning 17 games in an opening month for the first time since 2013.
When fans show up to Globe Life Field or flip on the TV, they expect the Rangers to win. That hasn’t been the case for most of the past three seasons.
So, fans should feel good about the club.
There have been many positives thus far: Josh Jung, Jonah Heim, Marcus Semien, Adolis Garcia, Ezequiel Duran, Travis Jankowski, Jacob deGrom when healthy, Nathan Eovaldi, Martin Perez, Dane Dunning, Cole Ragans.
That’s darn near half the team, and others probably deserve to be mentioned.
But it hasn’t all been rainbows and lollipops. The Rangers have room to improve.
