Your 'Rangers Daily Dose' comes to you on an off-day for the Texas Rangers, after suffering a two-game sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants. After their first day off in 19 days, the Rangers will begin a pivotal four-game series against their in-state rival Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

But the theme of this episode doesn't focus on the current happenings of the Rangers. Rather, it's a continuation of Monday's "Enjoy The Ride" episode, suggesting that a potential fire sale this summer is the wrong direction for the club's rebuild.

While there are certainly a few players that are legitimate trade candidates, the plan the Rangers have established suggests their contending window is closer than some may think. That makes a few other players candidates for the next contending core, rather than trade candidates to acquire more talent.
