I like Napoli better

I think Mitch is the better baseball player

Wish we could keep them both!

I guess I would probably trade Moreland so that we get something in return.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

The replies on this thread are in correlation to the amount of activity the Rangers had this offseason.

Ian Desmond do anything for anybody? Honestly couldn't tell you much about him. Power numbers look good.

Do not like. Every ball hit into the outfield will be an adventure next year. I never thought I'd say this, but it would be nice to have Martin right about now.

I seriously can't believe this team thought we were set with Josh F'ing Hamilton in LF.

I don't know if they thought they were set as much as there wasn't much out there in their price range.

As far as Desmond goes the national media seems to think it is great value (most thought he would get tens of millions this offseason).

We'll see.

I'm not saying they had to go get Ryan Braun or something. Just some type of backup plan because everybody knew Josh wouldn't play in 100 games this year.

I don't know that MOST thought... like several others that gambled on the QO he lost, but his loss is y'alls gain. Desmond at $8M is a relative steal.

He's a steal that has spent less than 10 innings roaming the outfield.

Yeah, I get that, but Daniels seems to think he'll be a plus-defender in LF.

Mazara and Ruggiano go a collective 5 for 5 with 4 RBI. What outfield problem? 162-0 here we come!
