"I like pitching with this lineup," Wilson told Rumblings. "And our defense is pretty good, so I like that, too. And that's a factor for me, because I want to win. The winning thing is more important than anything else -- and knowing I'm going to be in a good situation, because you have a choice. You have a choice of what you're going to factor your decision on. And for me, the ultimate thing is, 'Am I going to be a happy person?' I played for a team that wasn't winning for a long time, and now we're winning. So it's a lot easier to see a future here."
• Wilson reports he saw a recent quote from Roy Halladay (on ESPN.com, coincidentally enough) in which Halladay said, "To me, free agency was a chance to pick where you want to play, not a chance to see how much money you could get." And Wilson wants it on the record that he agrees with those sentiments "100 percent."
It's very possible this team is even better than the team that went to that World Series.
We've heard scouts say it. We've heard opposing managers say it. And in the Rangers' clubhouse, they firmly believe it.
Much more here.
