    Grienke=$160mil
    Hamilton=$75mil
    Upton=at LEAST Holland+Olt
    LaRoche=$45mil
    Dickey=Cruz+

    Pick one... that's probably what we'll get.

    I understand it's different but it was posted over on Newberg that only about 20% make it back from 2nd TJ surgery. No one hopes he's one that makes it back more than I do.

    I still think there's a good chance of TWO...one via Free Agency, one via trade.

    Greinke and Upton wouldn't surprise me. Neither would Hamilton and Dickey at this stage.

    Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?

    Apparently Ray Davis is on his way to Nashville. Not sure why he'd be going there unless it was for a big money signing.

    Also, according to sources we are making progress on a deal with Hamilton.

    I don't think the two are related. I doubt Ray goes to Nashville to resign Hamilton.

    Sources: #Rangers, Hamilton making progress. Deal, if reached, likely would be 4 yrs. But still possible another team could beat TEX offer.

    Ray Davis and Bob Simpson are both big time Josh Hamilton fans and are where we get our money to sign or trade for big name and big money ball players. I guarantee if he's on his way to Nashville it's to talk to Hamilton and Greinke's agents.

    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers are now working hard to acquire outfielder Justin Upton from the Diamondbacks.
    It's apparently part of the three- and four-team scenarios being discussed by the Rangers, Diamondbacks, Indians and Rays. The Rangers have been reluctant to give up Elvis Andrus or top prospect Jurickson Profar in order to acquire Upton, but it's possible something could get done if they get more teams involved. The Rangers are loaded with prospects, so they should be able to entice someone.
    Supposedly Olt would be going with some prospects to Cleveland and we would get Upton and MAYBE Shields but its all still crazy.

    I would imagine Holland and Olt with 2 or 3 more mid level prospects is what we would be giving up? I'd be okay with either of these 2 teams.

    I also think signing AJ Pierzynski needs to start being at the front of our priority list. We need a solid left handed bat in the bottom half of order and it just so happens we have a hole at the catcher position.


    1. SS- Andrus (R)
    2. 1B- Kinsler (R)
    3. CF- Hamilton (L)
    4. 3B- Beltre (R)
    5. RF- Upton (R)
    6. LF- Murphy (L)
    7. DH- Cruz (R)
    8. C- Pierzynski (L) Y2K, I know you hate this dude but he is a left handed solid bat who can lead a rotation.
    9. 2B- Profar (S)


    1. Darvish
    2. Harrison
    3. Shields
    4. Ogando
    5. Perez/ Colby (when he comes back)



    OR


    1. SS- Andrus (R)
    2. LF- Murphy (L)
    3. RF- Upton (R)
    4. 3B- Beltre (R)
    5. 1B- Kinsler (R)
    6. C- Pierzynski (L)
    7. DH- Cruz (R)
    8. 2B- Profar (S)
    9. CF- Martin (L)

    1. Greinke
    2. Darvish
    3. Harrison
    4. Sheilds
    5. Ogando.

    Latest from him is that Martin Perez is the name being mentioned to Cleveland.

    Really need to dump Michael Young if either of those lineups were to happen.

    I keep seeing Rangers name pop up with Justin Upton and in that case I don't see us keeping Hamilton.

    I would rather Hamilton because the drop off from Hamilton to the next guy is huge.

    Upton #'s .280 HR 17 RBI 67 Runs 107 SB 18
    Hamilton .285 HR 43 RBI 128 Runs 103 SB 7

    Best month
    Upton
    June 87 AB 15R 29H 2HR 14RBI 21K .333avg

    Hamilton
    April 86 AB 20R 34H 9HR 25RBI 17K .395

    Hamilton's worst month he produced 10R 4HR and 11RBI almost what Upton did his best.
