Rangers sign Kenny Rogers and Jeff Nelson

Postby trevisc » Mon Jan 12, 2004 12:20 pm

Poor Rangers..they just get worse and worse.

At least Nelson could supply some much needed Bullpen relief. That is..if he isn't in jail for assault!

Jeff Nelson (P - TEX)
1/12/04 Nelson has agreed to a one-year contract with the Rangers, contingent upon him passing a physical later today.


Kenny Rogers (P - TEX)
1/12/04 Rogers has reached a tentative agreement to return to the Rangers for two years and $6 million. He will take a physical today to make the deal official.

looks like they are at least trying to bolster their pitching. Whether or not it helps will remain a mystery for now.

If you dont mind the ERA and WHIP Rodgers should be good for 15+ wins with that offense.

15 wins sounds more like the high end of expectations, as opposed to a minimum to expect. The Rangers have too many games against the Angels, A's and Mariners. 10-15 wins with a 4+ ERA and 1.3+ WHIP.

It's probably better to take a risk on a younger pitcher with potential. I'd say go with someone like Eaton rather than Rogers.

Definately improves te Rangers staff...but $6 million/2 years...is to much for Rogers....

Too much for Rogers, but at least he's a veteran who will go out there every 5 days and keep an era somwhere just above 4.

Nelson? 8-o No comment.
