MY isnt a 5 tool player but the point about this costing us 21 million cant be ignored. JD and Nolan have royally ****ed us in the a this off season. After we gave them 3 million in attendance too. I won't be going to as many games this year because I know my money won't be spent on improving this team in the long run.
Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?
He successfully booted balls at all 5 positions
Also, you people need to lay off of JD and Nolan, we arent signing any big names but who cares, Greinke was close and chose not to sign here, oh well, nothing Texas can do. Did you really wanna go to 6 years and over 150 for Greinke? Hell no.
Did you wanna give Hamilton 5 years at 125? Hell no
Did you wanna give up Profar for Sheilds? Ummm no
Rangers still have a great young team that will still have a chance of winning the West and competing for a WS title this year and for many years to come.
We still have the finanances to add major pieces before july 31st.
We still have the pieces to trade for an Upton,Price,King Felix or Stanton if they become available and on the market.
Calm down guys, we are fine.

Call down, he's right I meant 5 position player. Maybe he can't play all 5 that great anymore, besides the $21 million cost, at least you could use Young at any infield position if you HAD to. Lance Berkman will be a glorified DH for his entire tenure here.
Young was also ridiculously consistent being able to play. Where as Berkman has been a walking injury. He has never missed significant time with his entire tenure with the Rangers.
