What does Nomar have to say about any of this? Trans, do you think a deal sending Nomar away and bringing Arod in has any chance of happening?



no one is getting AROD. Why can't peolple see this.. If you make this guy your obsesion during the offseason, you will be disappointed


Well, you never know if you don't try.

I understand Arod isn't going anywhere. I was merely asking where the story came from and how accurate something like that was, cuz I personally don't see that happening at all. Something about that article didn't add up for me. Merely asking questions, not making statements.

Here's a small point that no one has brought up yet concerning a rumored trade with Arod. The Rangers would not have a SS! 8-o I know, I know, a lot of you are saying just bring someone up from the minors. Well, there isn't anyone in the minors! The Rangers have not been paying attention to the SS position due to having Arod under contract. We don't even have a backup SS on the major league roster! We have a couple of guys that could probably do it if they had to, but not every day.

Just thought I'd point that out to everyone. :-)


What are you talking about? Didn't the Rangers trade Uggie Urbina to the Marlins for their highly praised SS?

No they didn't. They got:

1B Adrian Gonzalez
OF Will Smith
LHP Ryan Snare

Here's an article about it:

The three players acquired by Texas were lefthanded pitcher Ryan
Snare, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and outfielder Will Smith.

"We are very excited about the talent we are acquiring in this
trade," said General Manager John Hart. "With this deal, we are
continuing to add young players who we feel will be able to
contribute to our major league club. All three players were high
draft picks and adding talent of this caliber certainly strengthens
our organization."

Gonzalez, the first overall pick in the 2000 June amateur draft, has
batted .307 (42-137) in 36 games with Double-A Carolina of the
Southern League this season. The 21-year-old lefthanded first
baseman began the year with Triple-A Albuquerque of the Pacific
Coast League and has a .261 (72-276) average in 75 overall games
this season. Gonzalez has 17 home runs in each of the last two
seasons with at least 30 doubles and 90 RBI in each of those
campaigns. He has a career minor league average of .285 (434-1522)
in four seasons. Gonzalez underwent wrist surgery in the offseason.

Smith, a 21-year-old outfielder, has batted .293 (36-123) with 5
doubles and 13 RBI in 34 games with Carolina this season, also
appearing in 3 games with the Florida State League's Jupiter club.
He has batted .299 (426-1423) over four minor league seasons after
being the Marlins' sixth round pick in the 2000 draft. In 2000,
Smith led the Gulf Coast League in doubles (21), was second in hits
(75) and third in batting average (.368). He averaged 15 home runs
in 2001-02.

Snare, who is on Florida's Major League roster, has posted a 5-4
mark with a 3.67 ERA in 18 starts for Double-A Carolina this season.
The 24-year-old lefthanded pitcher has 77 strikeouts in 103.0
innings in 2003. Originally drafted by Cincinnati in the 2nd round
of the 2000 draft, Snare was acquired by Florida in the Ryan
Dempster trade on July 11, 2002. He combined to post a 12-4 record
with three different minor league clubs in 2002, compiling a 3.21
era. Snare was drafted out of the University of North Carolina.

Urbina is 0-4 with a 4.19 ERA and an American League leading 26
saves for Texas this season.

Fultz was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 26, retroactive
to June 23, with a bruised AC joint in his left shoulder after
collision with outfield wall in batting practice on June 25. Fultz
is 1-1 with a 3.63 era in 37 relief appearances with Texas this
season



No SS involved at all in that deal.
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.....

Oh I figured that, I wasn't taking any offense to the comment, merely reitterating my stance, sorry if it came across otherwise ;-D

Though...we Red Sox fans do seem to think every offseason that the big guys are heading to beantown every year, so I understand where you would have seen this "jist" :*)
