With two productive stints with the Texas Rangers, Rafael Palmeiro was not a flashy player, but always put up consistent hitting and power numbers that put Palmeiro amongst the top of the list in most offensive categories.  As a Ranger, Palmeiro blasted 321 Home Runs with a Slugging Percentage of .519 and 1,692 Hits of his 3,000 plus were in Texas.  Had Palmeiro been an Outfielder with his production he would likely have made more All Star Games.
