2. Did the Rangers look? Yes. Sheets lives here and is from Louisana. He is also a No. 1 starter. That mandates the Rangers consider him. The Rangers also need pitching. That mandates Sheets being interested in them. It's a perfect match. They had two weeks to get it done. Both have little in the way of alternatives. And it's still not done.
3. The Rangers can't afford him? Don't go there. Budget? Economy? No. The owner of this team has been willing to commit when he feels it's necessary. Millwood, Padilla, Zito, Kinsler, Young, amateur draft, international signings, ballpark improvement. Times are tough but Hicks would commit to Sheets if he felt the need. It's obvious he doesn't.
Something just doesn't feel right. This just isn't going to get done.
That part right there,"Times are tough but Hicks would commit to Sheets if he felt the need. It's obvious he doesn't."
WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS TEAM NEEDS PITCHING. ALWAYS HAS AND ALWAYS WILL. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SIGNING THIS GUY FOR TWO YEARS TO HELP THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR MINOR LEAGUERS. I CAN'T TAKE HICKS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. And yes I know the caps were on. thats me shouting.
