You wanted the Rangers to go get an ace? The Rangers got themselves an ace.

Of course, it is someone who hasn't been an ace in ten years, and who will be a special assistant to the general manager rather than pitching for the team, but still...

T.R. Sullivan has a story on Greg Maddux, who says that his main role will be to assist his brother, Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux, in working with pitchers at the major league and minor league levels.

Jeff Wilson's notes talk about the addition of Greg Maddux and Thad Levine being granted permission to interview with the Houston Astros.

Sullivan has a story about Jon Daniels' plans for the offseason, with the gist of it being, Daniels plays his cards close to the vest, and no one outside of his immediate front office circle really knows what the Rangers' plans are right now.

Richard Durrett talks about the possibility of the Rangers trading for Matt Garza. Bruce Levine wrote yesterday that the Cubs may be willing to part with Garza, although he says they'd want "four or five" players back in exchange for him.

Last offseason, the Rangers reportedly offered Derek Holland, Engel Beltre, Frank Francisco, and Robinson Chirinos (who the Rangers would get from the Cubs as part of a separate deal) to Tampa for Garza.

The Rangers' spring training schedule is out.
