Oh, this is just wonderful: ST. LOUIS • A hotel housekeeper found a dead woman this morning who apparently had been bound and gagged in a bathtub at the Holiday Inn, 5915 Wilson Avenue, police say. Police got the call about 9 a.m. today. The hotel is near Interstate 44 and Hampton Avenue. The woman, in her mid 20s, has not been identified. Staff members of the Texas Rangers organization are staying at the hotel, in town for the World Series against the Cardinals.

Rangers have second meeting with Lee


The Rangers met with free agent pitcher Cliff Lee and agent Darek Braunecker on Tuesday morning in Arkansas, general manager Jon Daniels said Wednesday. Daniels and club president Nolan Ryan were at the meeting. This is the second time the Rangers have met with Lee since the season ended. They and the Yankees are considered the two front-runners competing for Lee. Daniels declined to say if the Rangers have made a specfic offer to Lee. Lee could make his decision at some point during the Winter Meetings that start Sunday in Florida. Posted on December 1, 2010 at 3:22 PM

Omar Beltre and Alexi Ogando Finally to Report to ST!


Rangers officials have been told that the pair, who have been banned from the U.S. since 2005 for their part in facilitating a Dominican Republic-based human trafficking ring with sham weddings, will be given waivers to enter the U.S. for the 2010 season. Once cleared to enter the country, the players will petition to be removed from MLB's restricted list, which is considered more a formality than a major hurdle. They are expected at spring training in Surprise, Ariz., in less than three weeks.

Christina Kahrl-PECOTA for Colby Lewis


"The other interesting player who we already know isn’t in this year’s book is Colby Lewis, who as I noted last week has came over to the Rangers from Japan after two good seasons there. As Clay notes, his translation models "love what he did in Japan,[but] they love’d what he did in Sacramento in 2007. Forecasting a roughly 4.00 ERA, with his upsides (6 % breakout/40 % improve) substantially larger than his downside figures (12 % collapse/8 % attrition), plus a solid comp list." The comp list starts with Jon Lieber, followed by John Smoltz, Javier Vazquez, and A.J. Burnett. Working from that PECOTA spits out 169 1/3 IP, 165 hits, 141 Ks, 48 walks, a 1.26 WHIP and a 4.16 ERA (4.05 DERA), or 8.6 H/9, 2.4 BB/9, and 7.1 K/9. That’s projected for Texas, mind you, so it’s impressive. Or, to be blunt, he’s someone you’ll want to keep in mind, whether for your own league or for the Rangers’ rotation picture." Very nice indeed.
