With the Texas Rangers winning their first World Series in franchise history, stars Marcus Semien and Corey Seager laid the foundation for what has the chance to be Major League Baseball’s next great dynasty.
Marcus Semien has stamped himself as the greatest second baseman in Texas Rangers history after completing the mission to bring the franchise their first ever World Series championship along with his half a billion-dollar double play mate, two-time World Series MVP Corey Seager.
“Everything I ever worked for was for that moment,” said Semien when talking about his clutch bomb in the 9th inning put the game away for good.
“I had to simplify, see the whole field first. I am a pull hitter but needed to stay on the baseball longer.”
After the ball flew over the wall, the team’s quiet leader let out a mighty roar. Semien never shows emotion, whether good or bad. His even demeanor is a constant reminder of the teams “next play” mentality.
He’s also an iron man in today’s game. In 2023, he was MLB’s workhorse. When you combine his postseason, regular season and the All-Star Game, he played in 180 games and recorded an MLB-record record 788 plate appearances.
Marcus Semien Is MLB’s Most Durable Player
Over the last three seasons, Semien has missed just one game.
He never wants an off day, but for the time being he will finally get to enjoy some quality off time atop of the baseball mountain.
Texas Rangers Dynasty?
The Rangers will be returning almost all of their core pieces from this World Series team and with the best middle infield in the game together for at least five more years, championships and championship opportunities could become common practice in Arlington, especially after slaying the dragon known as the Houston Astros.
