The Texas Rangers continue to be the hottest team in baseball. They’re current 12-game winning streak has them sitting a top of the American League with a comfortable 5 game lead over the Los Angeles Angels. For the Rangers, their pitching staff has been strong but their hitting has been near the top of the league in nearly every statistical category.

Players like Mitch Moreland and Michael Young have them sitting in second place in Runs, Batting Average, and Slugging Percentage. Not to mention Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton. With the current streak, it looks like the Rangers could be headed back to the post season again this year.

Do you think they can maintain this pace and make it back to the World Series?
