What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Jim Bowden is reporting per his Twitter: "Rangers are now locked into 3 different bullpen pieces could be phone call away but they're not waiting if they get a deal they like #TRADES"
If I were guessing, and I am, I'd say there waiting to see if the Pence/Philly deal happens. Philly with Pence is likely to win the WS, so why trade talent for a rental.
The deals are for Bell, Uehara, and League. Rangers are looking for a better deal before they pull the trigger on 1-2 of these.
Big news from Ian Fitzsimmons: 1.Rangers news – this is as tight lipped as many have ever seen. Talking to 1 person close to the team. "We have a lot irons in fires.2. “We are trying to make a big splash.”
I just wonder what the big splash could be... A really BIG splash would almost certainly involve starting pitching. I couldn't imagine the Rangers trying to make a play on Pence, just for the fact that we have our corner outfield spots locked down until 2013, and Pence doesn't represent much of an upgrade over what we've already got.... This is puzzling.
I'm thinking it's a reliever or two and possibly a starter from Seattle or Oakland... Bedard, Fister, maybe... Who knows, it's all speculation. But in my eyes, a big splash would involve starting pitching in a trade market where starting pitching is very thin. Lyrics is also on the Rangers radar by the way...
The Rangers are sooooo Chingy
chingy? what the hell is that?
Anyways, Joe Wieland just threw a no hitter
The Rangers and Padres continue to discuss Bell, reports Scott Miller of CBS Sports, though they've made little progress. The Cardinals are on the fringe, and the Angels are not involved. The Padres are asking for three players for Bell, and have interest in Rangers prospect Robbie Erlin. Dan Hayes of the North County Times tweets that the Padres are rumored to have interest in Rangers Double-A righty Joe Wieland, who tossed a no-hitter against the San Antonio Missions tonight.
Come on man...Chingy, lasted a second... you member.....!
enjoy.... trudy all grown up!
