08:56 AM ET 09.11 | Frank Francisco still hasn't begun throwing since he suffered a triceps injury in late August. And while Francisco said he is making progress, there is no timetable for when he will resume throwing. That could jeopardize his spot on the playoff roster - at least for the AL Division Series - if the Rangers win the division.

The AL West is a cake walk. He has three more weeks to rest up.

The Rangers should work all of their players very hard now in preperation for laying down in the playoffs.

It would be complete if the Texas Rangers had Frank Francisco for the playoffs

rangers are just as bad of their division rivals, weak offense sporadic pitching a so-so deffense, the bullpen its not better than the starters rotation, at the end even if texas make it to the post-season it wouldn't be long before the whole club be gone for vacation!

They are coming off a sweep of the Yanks, They have plenty of offence, and pitching obviously. Look for them to be the highly under rated team that suprises every one in the playoffs. Now that it is starting to cool of a little in Texas, look for more solid outing by the pitching staff.
