TR Mailbag

So T.R. has a new mailbag up with some slightly intriguing questions that are asked. 

Why did the Rangers designate Franklyn German for assignment to call up Kameron Loe, if they were just going to send Loe back to the Minors a couple weeks later? German seemed like he was contributing.
-- John M., Denton, Texas

The Rangers were concerned with German's inability to throw strikes in crucial situations, but that's a problem all through the bullpen. The Rangers lead the league in walks by relievers and they have allowed the second highest number of inherited runners to score.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So this is definitely why Ron Washington brought in Robinson Tejeda yesterday right?  A bonafide show stopping run stopper. At least German would have been a better bullpen option than bringing up Kam Loe and successively Robinson  Tejeda. 

Shall we do another question?

Ken Rosenthal said that the Royals may make Zack Greinke available and would be looking for positions players at the upper levels. Given the fact that's the Rangers' strong suit, what would it take to get him?
-- Cameron P., Wylie, Texas

At least two of these three: Davis, Elvus Andrus and/or Max Ramirez. Still interested?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hell Yeah im still interested.  I would trade Elvus and MaxRam for Zack Greinke.  A guy with Ace potential for a shortstop who is in all likelihood probably not going to hit that much better than average and MaxRam who would be blocked by Chris Davis, Taylor Teagarden and/or Salty.  Trading Andrus and MaxRam is not going to deplete our farm system, but it would significantly help the major league club with Greinke.
