What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Latest On The Rangers' Search For HittersBy Steve Adams [July 26, 2013 at 9:41am CST]Even after acquiring Matt Garza earlier this week, reports have indicated that the Rangers are looking for offensive upgrades. They've been linked to Alex Rios, Hunter Pence and Kendrys Morales already, and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports now reports that the team has had internal discussions about re-acquiring Michael Young, given the news that Lance Berkman could miss the remainder of the season or even retire.
Heyman cautions that a Young trade isn't a likely outcome, and the Rangers are still more focused on adding outfield bats as they await the fate of Biogenesis-connected outfielder Nelson Cruz. The Yankees, Red Sox and Reds are all said to be considering Young as well. Heyman reports that the Rangers have also expressed interest in Padres outfielder Chris Denorfia and Mets outfielder Marlon Byrd, though reports indicate that the Mets feel little inclination to part with Byrd.
Texas has Manny Ramirez at Triple-A Round Rock, but his bat has cooled since a hot start, and Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported late last night that the team was unlikely to give Ramirez a shot anytime in the near future. Passan reported that the Rangers may not recall Ramirez at all, and one scout who watched Manny told Passan:
"This isn't Manny Ramirez. This is a 41-year-old still trying to play baseball and not doing it very well."
Ramirez is hitting .250/.318/.417 with three homers in 66 plate appearances since signing with the Rangers and reporting to Triple-A. He's struck out eight times and drawn six walks, but an evaluator told Passan that his bat "looked slow."
Chrissi: We dont need you to gather old news for us.
best part because it will make an uproar on this site...."Jon Heyman of CBS Sports now reports that the team has had internal discussions about re-acquiring Michael"
MY would be a HUGE upgrade over that turd Profar.
roles eyes at JD's last comment
I don't want Michael Young back. Wash would overplay him like he did last year and like he is doing David Murphy this year. JD, your an idiot simple as that
But at least I don't have a STUPID FUCKING NAME.
JD is pretty fucking stupid...plus is that all you could come up with? "But at least I don't have a STUPID FUCKING NAME." WEAK SAUCE, man
Butt out bitch. Btw-learn to spell your own name.
JD, your an idiot simple as that. He hates all prospects like a dumbass idiot.
Wow Rollie-you might wanna calm down.
Leave poor little JD alone. The poor boy has even gone to making posts under aliases so that he can respond to the only one who he has any remote agreement with, himself. Who knows, Rollie and Steev, he may even abduct your name or try to make offense of it. Oh, sorry Rollie, he has already done that numerous times with you and with nearly everyone else that all they wanted to do was discuss baseball. The saddest thing is that he does have some decent thoughts and ideas about his favorite team, but hardly anyone will pay attention because of all the crap he has posted. I could care less what he calls me, but when he offers up more than 20 posts on The Hack Wilson story that interested nearly everyone else and did his feeble minded best to sabotage one of the longest and most active post in a very long time, that was enough. So best, when you suspect the Post is from him, which I agree can be a challenge because he post under any name, then just ignore it and move on. When he offers a reply to a Post that is typically his pathetic style ignore it, if for some off-the-wall reason he gives a reply that has a degree of knowledge and interest to others, go ahead and reply with your thoughts.
Lee-take your own advice. You just spent 5 minutes talking about him.
LMFAO @ LEAH
Terry, good point.
Fuck Hackoff Wilson
Hack Wilson knows greatness JD. Something you have never or will never experience. You taunt legends. I wish Champ would give us some more information but you probably ran him off too. Idiot
Waaaaagh Hack Wilson. Size 5 feet lmfao
Sending Frasor out for a third inning..........
Yeah we needed Roy Oswalt.
JD, leck mein arschloch sauber!
I guess Roy is up to other things now.
