    2015 was an interesting year for us.  Jeff Bannister was in his first year as our manager, and we struggled with lots of injuries from the start.  We lost our Ace Pitcher, Yu Darvish, who had Tommy John Surgery.  We also had a lot of our offensive stars on the DL for a good portion of the season.  However, Bannister was able to rally the troops, and we came back strong after the All Star Break to contend for the AL West Division Championship.  The Astros were the favorite going into the All Star Break, but we had overtaken them.  Also, we made some key trades that brought in Ace Pitcher Cole Hamels from the Phillies.  In September, I took a Thursday off to go watch my Rangers play the A's in Oakland.  We were going for the sweep in this series.  I made a last minute sign at the hotel to show my support for the team.  LOL.  I think it got the job done as the Rangers did SWEEP the lowest of the low A's.  Cole Hamels pitched that day.  We crushed them A's by a score of 8 to 1.
