A staff of good young pitchers and savvy veteran pickups, such as Vlad Guerrero (below) put the Rangers in position to win the AL West, and after knocking off the favored Yankees in the ALCS, the club's first pennant. Though he's no longer in uniform, it's worth noting that is the first time Ryan has been on a World Series team since 1969.
