I am waiting to see if this deal was good or bad. Right now the Rangers have a logjam at OF/DH, the have the following players:
Gary Matthews Jr
If they can spin 2 or 3 of those guys off for some pitching help and use the money freed up to sign a pitcher, then overall this was an excellent trade. However, if they just sit around and make that stupid Nix and Dominguez for Benson deal
then I'm gonna be pretty ticked off as a Rangers fan. If Daniels is allowed to play with this, I think they could end up very well off. But I foresee Hicks getttin his nose in it and mucking things up.
As for Kinsler...I would say right now he is the favorite to get the starting 2B job, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the rangers trade for orlando hudson or something. Kinsler had a down year last year, so I think they might want to give him a little more seasoning.
At least we got rid of some horrendous defense and got a good OF. Daniels just need to convert the remaining OFs into some SP.
