1. A gun-to-your-head hypothetical question: would you take (a) Vladimir Guerrero at one year, $8 million; (b) Paul Konerko at two years, $24 million, (c) Adam Dunn at three years, $36 million; or (d) none of the above, instead opting for an internal DH rotation?
2. In view of Joe Posnanski's latest editorial on the importance of setup men (which, in a nutshell, argues the long-held sabermetric viewpoint that you want your best relief pitcher pitching in the highest-leverage situations, even if that means throwing your one-inning-only closer during the eighth inning), would you support a somewhat more fluid bullpen structure where Neftali Feliz wasn't restrained exclusively to the ninth inning -- and other relievers ended up nabbing save situations? Or is that notion simply too radical for your taste?
3. Who is your early favorite breakout candidate from the Rangers' age-25-and-young contingent in 2011? Note that this includes both current major leaguers (Julio Borbon, Elvis Andrus, Derek Holland, Michael Kirkman, etc.) and prospects (Martin Perez, Tanner Scheppers, Engel Beltre, etc.).
4. Up to this point in the Rangers' franchise history, who do you consider to be their greatest second baseman: Julio Franco (2,680 PA, .307/.382/.440, 129 OPS+ from 1989-93), or Ian Kinsler (2,723 PA, .281/.356/.466, 113 OPS+ from 2006-10)?
5. I'm running low on questions again (though the winter meetings should provide welcome fodder, but they're still a couple weeks away), so if there's something you'd like to see me ask one of these mornings, feel free to throw it out there and I'll grant it consideration. As an aside to all of that, thank you for your generous support of the website, and for allowing us to take a couple of days off to recharge. I have a feeling we're going to need it.
