Wednesday morning things

T.R. Sullivan has an article up about next week's winter meetings.  In case the point hadn't been made clear enough already, Sullivan emphasizes the Rangers' financial situation is bad, and they just can't afford to add any payroll unless they move someone like Blalock, Millwood or Padilla.

Evan Grant has the latest edition of his Rangers newsletter up, and he hits on the same point...the Rangers are in "cost-cutting mode," and can't possibly add any more payroll.

None of this "player specific" budgetary stuff from the team this year...they have a plan, and it involves having one of the lowest payrolls in the majors.  So much for Nolan Ryan coming on board and getting Tom Hicks to get the payroll to move up a notch.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Free Press says that the Tigers remain in the running to acquire Gerald Laird, who the cost-cutting Rangers seemingly aren't going to be able to afford next year.
