Millwood in Texas is the decent fit as long as he can keep the ball down.

Not great fantasy news though, he's liable to get spanked once in a while......

Sure, for fantasy ball, going to Texas wouldn't be good news for Millwood owners.

However, in real life, this would be a solid move for the Rangers to make. ;-D I'm not really a Millwood fan or believer, but he would improve our rotation. ;-D

You do realize that the same words were being uttered by many about Chan Ho Park?

Not that I think Millwood is Park, but he is a mediocre SP that is going to cost pretty large bucks at this point.

Nah, the difference here is that people actually believed Park could come into Texas, post a 3.5 era, and anchor the staff when we signed him. Millwood won't do that, and I doubt anyone expects him to do so. If he can hold an era at 4.00 and log a bunch of innings, he will win games and help the club. I don't think anyone's really expecting anything huge out of Millwood should we sign him.

Maybe the Rangers have a sense that they'l;l come to an agreement with Millwood, and that triggered the Young/Eaton trade?? :-? :-?

Millwood has shown through his career that he is consistantly inconsistant. After saying that, he should be able to post an ERA hopefully around 4 for Texas and would greatly improve the depth of their rotation. The only question is if Texas can afford to do it for somewhere between 9 and 11 mil a year.
