linkageNashville, TN — Just three days after not tendering a contract offer to catcher Geovany Soto, the Texas Rangers signed him to a one- year deal on Monday.
Although financial details were not released, the pact is believed to be worth $2.75 million plus incentives.
A Delgado/Soriano swap does make sense but I feel like there would need to be other moving parts here.
The more I've thought about current roster moves and us going forward I feel like the more I am all about us going out and finding a way to make our BP as good as anyones. While I have never thought to over pay and still don't I think it's one area in the market right now we can drastically improve. Put less pressure on our starters and just have a dominating pen that can shut it down 6-9 on any night.
Have a feeling it's an area that I've overlooked so much cause how easy I think it is to acquire BP talent however it's prob. the one area we can improve heavily and see the results on the field.
I am looking for a nice 3 team Blockbuster deal that lands us a nice young MLB ready Pitcher.

Paul Sullivan:In same sentence Theo said third base market was thin, would try to fill from within but also looking at trades and FA.
Theo on third base: “It’s a relatively thin third base market. We’re going to have to be creative. Rely on internal options if we can....
...Luis Valbuena play a lot there last year. There are couple players in FA and possible trade as well to fill the position.”
