The Rangers will look to defend their World Series title against the north side of Chicago on Opening Day, and they’ll do so with a starter on the mound that surprised us all in 2023. Nathan Eovaldi had a very strong 2023, finishing with a .296 wOBA and in the 95th percentile in pitching run value. The Texas offense certainly had his back, finishing 3rd in runs scored as well as OPS. The Cubs were better than their record indicated last season, but that’s mainly because they were really good at blowing teams out. Those were mainly lower level opponents and it’s highly unlikely that will be the case here. Despite being a low velocity pitcher, Justin Steele was able to put together a very nice season as well. The problem for him is this Texas lineup is just too potent from top to bottom. While Chicago has a high ceiling for the season, it won’t be enough on the road against a powerful opponent. Take the Rangers.
