Bad sign for Rangers, part II at least

We're all of 20 or so games into the Major League Baseball season and already the Texas Rangers are seeing a disturbing trend.

They can't beat the Seattle Mariners.

Nothing against Seattle, but if Texas wants to compete in the AL West, it better figure out Ichiro and Co. Winning division games has become more and more important since the implementation of the unbalanced schedule.

Look at the AL West last year. Think Oakland would have won the division if it hadn't won 16 of 18 games from Seattle? Ha, hardly. Yes, the Rangers took two of three from Oakland over the weekend, but another loss to Seattle was hardly the way to maintain momentum, no matter how early in the season.
