The Rangers may be god-awful this year, but you can’t blame their struggles on lack of communication.
Just look at Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre. They were having some kind of problem involving who was supposed to play where, and did they let that situation simmer? Did they let it fester? No. They hashed it out right there on the field in front of everyone.
Beltre wants Andrus to stay over there, and Andrus wants Beltre to stay over there. It’s like two kids arguing over who gets what side of the room.
KEEP YOUR TOYS ON YOUR SIDE OF THE ROOM, BILLY. Next move is to get out the masking tape and divide the room into halves. I’d love to see Andrus and Beltre fighting over who gets the top bunk.
In all seriousness, it’s great to see those guys working out their problems like that. It shows that they have a lot of mutual trust and respect. It’s when guys won’t talk to each other that you know you have a deeper problem.
The Rangers may be terrible but they haven’t reached silent treatment levels yet.
