Mike Shropshire's story of the ex-Washington Senators and their early years in Texas neatly picks up where Shelby Whitfield's "Kiss It Goodbye" left off in 1973. For the Rangers, things only got worse their first years in the Lone Star State, and then came Billy Martin who provided a quick fix turnaround that soon fizzled out. Along the way, Shropshire provides a fascinating look at having to cover this team and the pitfalls and pratfalls endured.
