T.R. Sullivan has a story laden with quotes from Jon Daniels about the state of things this offseason. Sullivan writes that the Rangers aren't going to sign both Yu Darvish and Prince Fielder, and that the Rangers are still talking long-term extensions with several players, but that a deal with Mike Napoli is apparently not going to happen.
Evan Grant writes that Mike Olt will get some time at first base this spring. Before folks jump to conclusions on this, I'd suggest it is something to increase his versatility and give the Rangers some options should someone get hurt or struggle, rather than an indication that any sort of permanent move is in Olt's future.
Richard Durrett looks at who the options at first base on the free agent market other than Prince Fielder are, and it isn't an impressive group...basically, if you aren't going to sign Fielder, you probably don't want to sign a free agent first baseman.
