    I think he thought he owed the fans an explanation of why he walked away. Because the team is mired in an atrocious season, some might think that the resignation was the ownership's version of a...

    I have no issue with you disagreeing with me, but I think your dislike of JD is a personal issue, because the facts just don't back it up. He made a few really terrible deals, sure (the Soriano deal,...

    Price is expensive. He's getting paid $14mm this year via arbitration and has his last arbitration year left still. Its almost for sure that he makes $20mm, maybe more, in 2015 and then asks for a...

    Rios wasn't dealt because the intention is that the Rangers compete next year and the weakest part of their team is the outfield. I will be very surprised if Rios's option is not picked up unless...

    Completely agree. In fact, this rotation is concerning me quite a bit. Darvish has a tendency to pick up those "general soreness" type of injuries and miss a start or two. I think Perez is incredibly...

    Second basemen have one of the steepest curves of decline of any other position. If he takes care of his body he can be a good player into his mid to late 30s, but the precedent is very much in the...

    Kins will see more fastballs in that lineup, and he's a good fastball hitter. But the main reason why I think his power numbers will go up, while his peripherals will go down, is because he will have...

    Harrison is back pitching off of a mound and he will be back to 100% by spring training, barring setback. Lewis signed a minor league deal and his health is much more of an issue, so he's mainly a...

    I think if bidding for Tanaka goes up to $20mm annually, then guys like Garza and Jimenez find work very quickly. I think he signs an escalating contract for a long duration, something like 7 years...

    I don't mean any offense, but that is an absolutely worthless deal. The Rangers have a dearth of young talented solid pitchers, but not a lot of experience being a top of the rotation horse (besides...

    I think they want Cruz to walk to recoup the first round pick. And if it so happens that the draft pick compensation completely dries out the market, I don't think JD has any problems bringing back...

    The Rangers had $74mm committed to the team at the end of the 2013 season. Losing Kinsler and adding Fielder adds $8mm to next years payroll. Resigning Soto is another $3mm. The details of Choo's...

    1. The only way I can convince the kind of players it would take to get Braun, is to show you precedence. Mark Texeira got traded to the Braves for their top 3 prospects (each guy was a top 50...

    1. Rangers don't get Braun without an overwhelming offer. It starts with Profar and a pitcher, someone like Martin Perez, plus a few other pieces. Since those...

    Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom got dealt to the A's for Michael Choice and some guy I don't know. Seems like a speed for power swap, except Choice is 24 and still developing while Gentry is in his...

    Kind of a minor thing, but the $30mm is being paid by the Tigers in 5 $6mm payments from 2016 to 2020. That makes Prince a $24mm annual player this year and next, but just $18mm for the rest of it....
