Pedro working with Feliz.... This is good.

Give me some of that Pedro Change + Feliz Fastball, can we do that?

Marteen es muy ready por el season

Sounds like he's healthy, strong and armed with a new two seam fastball. I expect a really solid year this year that puts him poised to make a run at the majors in 2012

"Why would they do that to such a pro?" one GM asked. "Wouldn't they be better moving Young to second and making [Ian] Kinsler the DH, [for] just chemistry's sake?" Has to be Dayton Moore, right?

Max Ramirez and Rapada DFA'd

+

Glad one them of was Rapada, but I wish they had dfa'd Guillermo Moscoso instead of MaxRam. Makes sense because he likely wont make the roster out of spring anyways, but I do think Ramirez is still a better prospect than Moscoso who seems destined to simply be a another AAA arm.

Rangers sign Carlos Truinfel's brother

+

for 300K, looks like a smaller guy, plays SS... Decent amount of money so he probably has some upside.

I thought this story was hilarious.

Competitve advantage of spending on the draft/valuing prospects gone?

I go over and read Royals Review sometimes and found this gem of an article. Some great analysis of what is happening with the amatuer market now that almost all ML teams have recognized the market ineffiecency of before and have begun to spend pretty big on the draft. Also gives a great analysis on what that means for small market teams like the Royals. The Rangers, however, can dodge the small market label, and should only grow more into a mid-major type market as they continue to field winning teams over the next few years.

Two great articles over at BBTiA on last nights game and Lee

Absolutely loved Josh's article on luck and Joey's refutation of Evan's article about the heat causing Lee to sign elsewhere.

The Rangers are calling many clubs and inquiring about starting pitching. That includes Mariners pitcher Cliff Lee, according to industry sources.

Projecting the Defense

Since we are doing all the projections for all the pitchers and hitters, what are your projections for us defensively? Some of it is obviously subjective as there is no perfect way to measure it,...

JD is pulling a "Red" from Shawshank...

Ben Rogers with hard hitting reporting... I cant deny the fact that I do love having JD as our GM. We need the JD applaud .gif. He's done good work the last few days with the enviroment surrounding him... Being proactive in a destructive situation, props for doing solid work JD.

Victor Rojas doing quality play by play, Justin Smoak playing 1B.... In game one, against Venezuela, Smoak absolutely demolished the baseball, 2 HRs and 3 extra base hits in first three at bats. He ended up 4-6 with 2 2Bs and 2 HRs... Yikes The US lost in extra innings 13-9. They are playing Germany today. Tourney is being held in Germany

Matt Murton DFA'd

LF who is a lefty masher, Id be all for him platooning with D-Murph in LF in the future. He'd be a better option than Boggs who isnt really a LHP masher. We already have a crowded OF, I know, but id love to pick him up as he could be a very useful player for us, especially if we move an OF this offseason.

Benson to relief?

2

It looks like Benson will be getting the Jennings treatment soon. Probably for the best, as Benson can take Mendoza's spot as long reliever when he's deemed ready and we can leave Feldman in the rotation.
