How they got here: Rangers
They were supposed to be in the 2012 postseason after winning the American League each of the last two years. And they've gotten to the playoffs again in predictable fashion: By bashing the ball. No team in the majors has scored more runs than the Rangers, and only the New York Yankees have a higher slugging percentage. But they stumbled down the stretch, losing seven of nine.
