The Texas Rangers could be a threat to the Braves World Series hopes
There aren’t many teams in the MLB that have a better offense than the Braves. The Rangers are one of the only teams that can claim that feat. The Rangers don’t have a hitter that is as great as Acuna has been, but they have a few that are close. The Rangers are balanced and complete offensively, where they have four players in double digits for home runs and eight players with over 30 RBIs.
Again, the Braves won’t have to worry about the Rangers until the World Series. For the most part, a lot of the most talented teams are in the American League, which is good news for the Braves. This means the Braves won’t have to battle a playoff gauntlet where they face the Rays and the Rangers in the same month.
The Rangers don’t have the playoff experience that the Braves do, but they do present an interesting threat to Atlanta. The fact that Nathan Eovaldi is pitching as well as he is right now adds to their ability to cause ripples down the stretch.
