Chris Woodward: Shortened Season Benefits Rangers Because Of Strong Rotation


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Rangers Manager Chris Woodward joined Shan & RJ to talk baseball and "quarantine life" in Arizona. 

One of the things MLB is currently discussing is how many games they'll play when baseball returns this season. That all depends on the status of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, but as little as 81 games has been mentioned as a possibility. 

The guys asked Woody if he believes a shortened season helps the club because of the quality of their rotation? 

"I do. There's been a bunch of different hypothetical scenarios run that have us better because of that. So, I'm assuming that the pitching aspect puts us in a better position," Woodward said. "The fact that we have five really good starters helps us a ton. I don't think a lot of teams are in that situation. So, that's definitely an advantage for us."
