Will the Rangers regroup in 2014?
Had they beaten the Rays in Monday night's one-game playoff, the 2013 Texas Rangers would have been remembered for winning their final seven regular-season games and snapping out of a month-long tailspin. But Tampa Bay's 5-2 win made that effort a footnote to the Rangers' second straight September free fall. There's plenty of blame to go around, but remember this: In the past decade, when the Red Sox and Mets collapsed down the stretch, managers Terry Francona and Willie Randolph lost their respective jobs. Will Texas skipper Ron Washington keep his?
