What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability

Am I missing anyone?
The other infielder hasn't been announced yet, though it's widely speculated to be either Garcia or possibly Solarte. MLB Depth Charts says probably Garcia.
Didn't Solarte get cut on Saturday? I'm betting on Garcia, although I wouldn't be disappointed if we got a sub-mendoza line hitting veteran that still had a glove. He won't see much playing time, anyways with Baker coving all but SS and 2nd.
Yes Solarte got sent to minor league camp this weekend. The rumor of Tyler Green for Borbon is out there. That wouldn't be horrible. I really am getting the feeling that the Rangers would rather have Garcia in the minors playing more regularly.
Strong spring showings by Borbon and Adduci. Tough cuts.
Agreed. If they go with 7 relievers and try to send Borbon through the waiver wire, who is out of options and won't clear waivers, they'll likely be forced into a small return and may ultimately end up pulling him off waivers, if the claiming team doesn't offer anything of value. In which case, Borbon is likely to end up on the 25 man roster.
Adduci is already on the Round Rock roster as an invitee, and no option is needed. Borbon will make the 25 mqn roster, at least until Appomatac Day [will it be Julio's on the Rangers], when a 5th starter is needed for the first time barring rain out on that day. May work better for the Rangers, if they have to move him to Round Rock, all other teams will have already established their 25 and a just tad less likely to add an out fielder. . Everything though changes with injuries, but a Nelson Cruz 2008 type scenario.is a strong possibility/
JD said Saturday three spots still being decided: 1) one position player 2) fifth starter 3) one bullpen spot. ...
So then the 6 locks for the bullpen are?
And then its either going to be Kirkman or Robertson for the 7th spot depending on whether Kirkman gets the 5th starters spot?
The Borbon situation sort of sucks.
NTE...I am worried about you, please read this article.
Joey Butler aka Joey Bats should be starting in front of Nellie Cruz right now.
Garcia it is, as LSB reports. We'll see how that goes!
And Tepesch is your #5, ladies and gents! Kirkman to 'pen. We're all set, so it seems.
Joey Bats made the squad! See you in Arlington big fella!
