Vlad to the Rangers?

Rotoworld wrote:A source has informed Jim Bowden of Sirius XM that the Rangers are finalizing a one-year contract with Vladimir Guerrero.

It's probably worth noting that Bowden has been wrong before, but he's citing a "source close to" Vlad and it's common knowledge that the 35-year-old slugger has been in contact with the Rangers all winter. If the news is true, he will take over designated duties in Arlington, Texas, where he boasts a 394/.471/.705 batting line in 50 career games


I don't know where the Rangers are getting their money from but I would love to see Vlad in the that park/lineup.

I would also love to see Vlad in Tex. I wonder though if the slash lines are a product of hitting in that park or against Ranger pitching?

I imagine this will be the lineup...

C: Salty/Teagarden
1B: Davis
2B: Kinsler
3B: Young
SS: Andrus
LF: Cruz
CF: Borbon
RF: Hamilton
DH: Guerrero

-at least until Smoak gets promoted mid-season

Don't you mean the positions? I certainly hope that would be the lineup :-b

Well, that would be the starting defensive lineup.

I really like this signing by the rangers. I think Vlad has a nice chance to rebound in a big way. Unfortunately he will only start with UTIL. What are the chances Vlad gets to play in OF?

Considering they presumably will still have David Murphy, I honestly think it'd be a longshot for Vlad to get time in the outfield with the current roster. Though, the Rangers have talked about dealing Nelson Cruz, likely at his peak value might I add, which would move Murphy to the starting LF spot. Prospect Mitch Moreland could also see time in the OF late in 2010.

If Smoak gets called up, it's going to be Davis that gets pushed. :-C

More when than if imo but Davis is very cheap and I could see a trade being made to keep his bat in the lineup.

Adding Vladdy, wow. That would be some hell of an offensive line up. If Tex could get more QS's, watch out.
