What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Here is a list on MLBTR, of those likely to be dealt or put on waivers in August. What sticks out to you guys? Who do you think the Rangers could reasonably get for that extra bench bat (Vlad?) or extra arm?
Do we really care? Just kidding, I was against doing any trades this year but the trades we did seem like they were exactly what we needed.
I don't know...but this is for you J.D. you beautiful man you...
I love looking at the list and then you get to the Dodgers...and it's practically their whole team. haThat list is pretty underwhelming though...maybe to Vlad bc I don't think he would mess with our chemistry. If anything, he'll just add to it. Reed Johnson looks pretty appealing too. Other than that, there isn't anything I'd be willing to give up to get any of those guys...
Can't imagine he'd ever get to the Rangers claiming him, but Jason Kubel would be nice.
Others I would have interest in off that list at mlbtr would be:
Conor JacksonHeath BellJamey Carroll
I would almost say look for the Rangers to have some interest in Jason Kubel. Either putting Kubel in a corner OF spot or at DH. Could also mean moving Moreland to LF and putting Napoli or Michael Young at 1B. I don't see them making any kind of push for Alex Rios or Jason Bay, two busts with terrible contracts. Kubel has had a good year, and has about $1 mil. left on his contract this season. Good bargain for a good bat.
Kubel would never get as far as the Rangers if he went on waivers.
Kubel is a nice player but probably very low on the Rangers priority list. Barring an injury to Josh or Mitch they would probably look for a RH bat.
Fort Worth's own Scott Harriston is kind of interesting, as a cost you nothing flyer.
