Rangers Sale update & Heyman's midseason awards

Bids are expected in mid-August

 

Another team for sale, the Texas Rangers, is likely to put out financial data soon for potential buyers to peruse, according to a source familiar with that process. Bids of $550 million are likely, sports bankers and baseball officials said.

 Heyman Adds this

Nolan Ryan

is said to be in one of at least four groups trying to buy the Rangers from Tom Hicks, who tried very hard as an owner and seems finally to be getting the hang of it. However, Hicks is in financial distress after a failed investment in the Liverpool soccer team and various other reverses. Some folks think he may need to sell the NHL's Dallas Stars as well as the Rangers.

 

Heymans midseason Awards 

Cy Young

3. Kevin Millwood, Rangers. He has been the horse that Rangers owner Tom Hicks envisioned when he signed him to a $60 million, five-year contract. That 2.80 ERA is even more impressive considering his home park.

AL ROY

2. Elvis Andrus, Rangers. Playing a terrific shortstop and has hung in there nicely on offense (.267, 16 stolen bases).

AL Manager of the Year

4. Ron Washington, Rangers.

Hands up -- who expected Texas to be threatening like this?

 

AL Exec of the Year

2. Jon Daniels, Rangers.

The switch of Elvis Andrus to shortstop was a gutsy move. Cheap, effective pickups like Darren O'Day have been key for a strapped team. They're set up nicely for the future, too, with more young talent than just about anyone (Derek Holland, Neftali Feliz, Julio Borbon and Justin Smoak head a long list).
