Rangers advance again, and wait for ALCS opponent
Question of the Day
ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - The Texas Rangers are back in the AL championship series and waiting for an opponent.
This is a team that didn’t win a postseason series in the franchise’s first 49 seasons before getting to the World Series last year. Now the Rangers have advanced in the playoffs for the second straight year.
Game 1 of the ALCS is Saturday, either at the New York Yankees or home against Detroit. The Tigers and Yankees play the deciding game of their series Thursday night.
General manager Jon Daniels says the Rangers set out a few years ago to build a team that would last. He says they aren’t where they want to be yet. But he hopes to look back someday and say, “Hey, we did something pretty special.”
