Reliving the blame in Texas

While many are trying practice revisionist history, Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News tries to remember that ARod wasn't the only thing going wrong in Texas earlier this decade:

You don't have to like him, but was it really A-Rod's fault that the Rangers never won when he was their shortstop?

Was it his fault that Hicks once tried to make like George Steinbrenner, then had second thoughts?

Was it his fault that Rangers pitching always stunk?
Was it his fault that the Rangers traded him to the Yankees for Alfonso Soriano and Joaquin Arias, and that Jon Daniels traded Soriano to the Nationals for Brad Wilkerson, Terrmel Sledge and Armando Galarraga, only to watch Wilkerson strike out at a world-record pace while Galarraga escaped to Detroit?

Was it A-Rod's fault that the Rangers took so long to get their priorities straight?
Meh, it probably was his fault anyways.

Sure. The steroids prob in Texas was all Arod's fault. Of course! Don't blame Conseco, Palmeiro, JuanGone, Ruben Sierra or Pudge who were all there before him.
