Ah, it's good to be back.
After a seven-year absence, the Rangers make their grand return to the MLB postseason on Tuesday. It wasn't easy to get here, but Texas survived a wild end of the season to clinch a Wild Card berth.
The Rangers hope their good fortune will continue this week in the AL Wild Card Series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa Bay had a better record during the regular season, but Texas boasts the best offense in the American League and is more than capable of winning this series.
To celebrate the start of the postseason and get Rangers fans fired up, the team put out an epic hype video ahead of Game 1 on Tuesday.
Rangers Playoff Hype Video
The video runs a little over a minute long. With its slick editing, cool music, nice graphics and exciting highlights, it's sure to get any Rangers fan jacked up. The video ends with the motto "Go and take it," which is exactly the mentality that Texas needs to have if it wants to upset the Rays this week.
Getting this far is impressive, and now we're here. Only 12 teams remain and the championship is up for grabs, but only one team can win it. The Rangers have been battling all season and they're clearly a hungry bunch, but they need to keep fighting if they want to come out on top.
As we saw during the regular season, nothing is guaranteed. A good season isn't always to get you into the playoffs, let along win a title (just ask Mariners fans). You have to make the most of these opportunities, because you never know when or if you'll be back.
The time is now, so let's go and take it.
