The number one source for all your A.J. Preller related news items

Good morning.

The Star-Telegram crew recaps Day 1 of the GM Meetings. Here's a quote from Jon Daniels:

"The lines are open," Daniels said Monday night. If there's something there, great."

"So, you know, act now or whatever. Operators are standing by."

T.R. Sullivan reports on the biggest news from yesterday which was Nelson Cruz rejecting the Rangers' $14.1 million qualifying offer to pursue a multiyear deal. One wonders what'll happen to the Boomstick hot dog...

Jeff Wilson also writes about Nellie's not-so-shocking rejection. Seriously, though. The Boomstick has already lost its Nolan Ryan Beef. Now this?

I guess we'll always have the ALCS...

Anthony Andro writes about the front office promotions of A.J. Preller to assistant general manager and Mike Daly to senior director of minor league operations. No press release was issued for Tim Purpura's new position as assistant to the traveling secretary.

Todd Wills profiles not-free agent Masahiro "Darvish with grit" Tanaka who will presumably be posted by his team in Japan sometime this winter. For what it's worth, Wills has his eye on a trade for David Price rather than getting involved in the bidding for Tanaka.

Jerry Crasnick surveyed a bunch of MLB folks to see where they believe some prominent players will end up this offseason. A bunch of them think the Rangers will make Todd Wills' dreams come true.

Gerry Fraley writes about Robbie Ross showing his commitment to making the Rangers' rotation by pitching in the the Dominican winter league.

Finally, Richard Durrett writes about the Space 11 Darvish Museum opening on 11/11 at 11:11 a.m. in Kobe, Japan yesterday.
