Ok, so the Rangers traded away Soriano. No problem. We get Sledge/Wilkerson/pitching prospect.
Ok, let's discuss.
Toronto wants Wilkerson. Fine with me. We've been after Batista, so I wouldn't be surprised to see that deal happen. Wilkerson for Batista.
Clemens also was not offered arbitration by Houston. He's a Texas boy, has family relatively close, doesn't mind pitching in the AL. Chance the Rangers might go after him fairly hard? I think so. With as bad as we need pitching, I can't see us not making a run at him.
Where will Mench wind up? It's basically guaranteed that he's moving. Way too many teams interested, and we still have to get our pitching figured out. Seems like Mench is/could wind up in a bidding war. It won't be a huge war, or a big name or anything, but it should result in some decent pitching heading our way.
All in all, I'm not upset with my Rangers just yet, but they better get on the ball and get some decent pitching before the season starts.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
