At Backhand Shelf, Justin Bourne looks at five teams and the identities that they posses.
For the Rangers, he writes that they are a team defined by their unity and relationships with each other:
When you mess with one guy on this team, you mess everybody, which a pretty decent formula in a seven game series. “Ahhh, I think maybe I’ll just mess with nobody.”
The best part of this Rangers team, and it was the case last year as well, was how much they all like each other. They play for each other and want to win for each other and there is no better quality for a team to have. They fight for each other, hit for each other and sacrifice for each other and messing with one of them only leads to four other guys in blue coming to take action.
