In 2010 the Texas Rangers finished spring training with a record of 10-19. They went to the World Series. In 2011 they went 13-16 and went back to the World Series. Last spring they went 12-17 and returned to the playoffs. Now as I write this they have a spring training record of 0-4-1. The overreaction from fans has begun. Let me assure you that the Rangers will be fine.
Spring training is when the veterans (who didn't play winter ball) shake off the rust. It's when rookies and non-roster invitees try to get a spot on the team. It's also when lower level prospects get a chance to show their talents to management. The one thing it's not about, is who finishes with the best record. Last year the Padres and Blue Jays finished with the best records in their respective spring leagues. Neither team made the playoffs. In 2011 it was the Giants and Twins. They also missed the playoffs.
As spring moves on players will be sent back to the minors or cut completely. The veterans and rising stars will get more and more playing time. And the Rangers will win a few games. Until then just look at the games for what they are: mass tryouts. If I still haven't convinced you that preseason records aren't important then allow me this one last comparison. In 1989 the Dallas Cowboys finished the preseason with a 3-1 record. They went 1-15 in the regular season. In 1992 they finished the preseason with an 0-4 record. They went on to win the Super Bowl.
Maybe it won't be that bad if the Rangers finish the spring winless after all. Okay, I'm kidding. Even I couldn't handle that.
