The Texas Rangers 2002 season involved the Rangers finishing 4th in the American League west with a record of 72 wins and 90 losses.



  • October 29, 2001: Edinson Volquez was signed by the Rangers as an amateur free agent.[1]
  • November 26, 2001: Todd Van Poppel was signed as a free agent by the Rangers.[2]
  • December 13, 2001: John Vander Wal was traded by the San Francisco Giants to the New York Yankees for Jay Witasick.[3]
  • December 18, 2001: Dave Elder was traded by the Rangers to the Cleveland Indians for John Rocker.[4]
  • January 8, 2002: Juan González was signed as a free agent by the Rangers.[5]
  • February 28, 2002: Tony Mounce was signed as a free agent by the Rangers.[6]
  • March 19, 2002: Justin Duchscherer was traded by the Texas Rangers to the Oakland Athletics for Luis Vizcaino.[7]

Regular season

  • Alex Rodriguez had a major league-best 57 HR, 142 RBI and 389 total bases in 2002, becoming the first player to lead the majors in all three categories since 1984. He had the 6th-most home runs in AL history, the most since Roger Maris' league record 61 in 1961, and the most ever for a shortstop for the 2nd straight year while also winning his first Gold Glove Award, awarded for outstanding defense.
  • The 109 home runs hit by Alex Rodriguez in 2001-02 are the most ever by an American League right-handed batter in consecutive seasons. However, the Rangers finished last in the AL Western division in both years, a showing that likely cost Rodriguez the MVP award in 2002 when he finished second to fellow shortstop Miguel Tejada, whose 103-win Oakland A's won the same division.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
