What would you like the Rangers to do with their 3B/DH situation if they do sign Beltre? It almost sounds like it would be an accident if they did, but, still, what type of roster shuffling could you live with to accommodate it?
FWIW, Newberg did find a report that the Rangers have signed Beltre, but there it appears to be a Dominican version of incarceratedbob.
The following has turned up this morning on the Pio Deportes website out of the Dominican Republic:
· "Según reporta José Luís Montilla del portal Piodeportes.com, el antesalista Dominicano Adrian Beltré alcanzo un acuerdo por 96 millones y seis años con los Rangers de Texas, Según fuente la cual se mantendrá en el anonimato, la firma se llevó a cabo cerca de la madrugada de hoy. La posible firma se estará haciendo oficial hasta tanto no se complete el examen de rigor (Fisico)."
· Very roughly translated by Google: "According to reports [from] José Luis Montilla [of] Piodeportes.com portal, Dominican third baseman Adrian Beltre reached an agreement [for] $96 million over six years with the Texas Rangers, [according to] sources [who wish to] remain anonymous. The signing took place around dawn today. The [club] may be [waiting to make it] official until it has completed the review of rigor (Physical)."
· Nobody else anywhere appears to have this note, and in fact there are stories stateside this morning suggesting that the Angels could be the final interested suitor standing.
