Monday a.m. Rangers stuff

T.R. Sullivan has some good news on the 40 man roster front...Omar Beltre and Alexi Ogando, having been on the restricted list the last several years, do not count towards the 40 man roster until the end of spring training.  That means that, rather than having to make a couple of moves now to make room for Beltre and Ogando, as we had initially believed, the Rangers don't have to make a move until late March.  That gives Joaquin Arias and Luis Mendoza (most likely) some more breathing room before a move has to be made.

Richard Durrett takes a look at the Rangers' first base situation for 2010.  First base was a disaster last year, and the lack of production from the position was a significant part of why the Rangers weren't a playoff team.  Chris Davis will start the season at first base again in 2010, and there seems to be optimism that he's fixed the issues that plagued him early last year and is poised for a bounceback year.  The Rangers need him to be a lot closer to the guy we saw in 2008 than the guy we saw in 2009.
