67-95, 5th in AL West

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The next stop for Adrian Beltre: Cooperstown. The Rangers third baseman announced his retirement after 21 seasons and with 3,166 hits, 477 home runs, 1,707 RBIs and five Gold Gloves, he's an easy first-ballot Hall of Famer. Beltre was a true two-way force, one of the best defensive third basemen ever who finished in the top-10 of the MVP voting six times. He's in the argument as one of the top five third basemen of all time -- his 95.7 WAR trails only Mike Schmidt and Eddie Mathews and ranks ahead of Wade Boggs, George Brett and Chipper Jones -- and he'll be remembered for his joy for playing the game ... and not wanting anybody to touch his head.

WS loss gives Rangers manager bond with fans

A source tells me Joe Espada, who was one of the finalists, is out of the running for the Rangers' managerial opening. Supports reports that Chris Woodward is the frontrunner for the job.
