Good news for Blalock fans/owners ...

He signed a 5 year deal to play his home games at TBA:

from ESPN:

The Rangers also finalized a $15.25 million, five-year contract with All-Star third baseman Hank Blalock. The deal includes a club option for a sixth year.


Okay, okay, it's not like he was going to be a FA anytime soon. Still, this means no arbitration, no contract distractions, and this also makes him unlikely to be traded. If he continues to produce and - dare I say it - improve, $3 million dollars a year is a damn good bargain.
"The game has a cleanness. If you do a good job, the numbers say so. You don't have to ask anyone or play politics. You don't have to wait for the reviews." - Sandy Koufax

Wow- Talk about a good deal for the Rangers. $3 mil a yr for 5 yrs with his potential. They could have a huge bargain in their hands for years to come. Good job Rangers management!

Solid move by the Rangers....just hope there is no loop holes in that contract....that will let him get away early.... :-)

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
