Thoughts on a 6-4 Rangers loss
  • That was a lousy trip to the Bay Area.
  • The Rangers are now 3-8. The Rangers are 18.3% of their way through the 2020 season. 11 games into a season isn’t a sample size that should result in materially changing your priors…however, having a lousy record 18.3% of the way into the season puts you in a hole, and the shortened season gives the team a limited amount of time to get out of it. Even with expanded playoffs, if the next half-dozen games go like the last half-dozen games have gone, thoughts of being a playoff contender likely go out the window.
