StlToday.com wrote:The Rangers reportedly made a three-year, $25 million offer before leaving the winter meetings Thursday. The Giants modified their proposal Friday after originally offering Morris $16 million over two years. The Giants are expected to make a frantic push after failing to offer salary arbitration to their own free agent pitcher, Brett Tomko.
The Cardinals apparently offered him a token deal for 2 years worth $13M.
If this story is legit, I have to wonder what the Rangers are thinking here. Morris had terrible second-half numbers (5.32 ERA, 16 HRA), which were on par with his awful 2004 numbers (4.72 ERA, 35 HRA). Why the Rangers would be interested in putting those HRA totals in The Ballpark doesn't make sense to me.
