Friday a.m. Rangers things

I already covered the Galloway column on the ownership situation last night, so I'm not going to re-hash that again.  But realistically, the ownership situation is the story this offseason.  Everything else, until that is resolved, is pretty much secondary, since so much is in limbo until it is determined who the new owner is going to be and how much that owner is going to authorize be spent.

Jeff Wilson runs down the Rangers' possible targets at the winter meetings, although again, the market is likely to be slow, and the Rangers aren't likely to do anything significant until the ownership situation is resolved.

Wilson also writes about Steve Beuchele taking over as manager for Frisco in 2010, along with other items discussed by Jon Daniels in a press conference yesterday.

T.R. Sullivan says that the Rangers' payroll is likely to go down in 2010 from 2009, at least until the ownership situation is resolved, and runs down what he thinks the team should look like if the Rangers simply signed no one this offseason.  The Rangers, of course, signed no major league free agents last offseason, although they added Omar Vizquel and Andruw Jones (among others) on minor league deals.

Richard Durrett thinks C.J. Wilson should be a starter.
