Thursday morning Rangers news and links

Morning everyone.  Are you fired up about the Rule 5 draft this morning?

There was a lot of buzz about the Rangers and Shin-Soo Choo last night, after T.R. Sullivan's report that the Rangers had made Choo a seven year offer, and Evan Grant writes that, at this time of year, its important when sifting through reports to understand a lot of claims and denials hinge on semantics.

Sullivan writes that the Rangers have made their "best effort" to land Choo, that there is mutual interest on both sides, and now the Rangers have to wait and see what Choo chooses to do.

Grant writes that the Rangers are likely to continue to be patient, and let things potentially play out until possibly February...interestingly, he says two years ago the Rangers were "on the verge" of signing Prince Fielder when the Tigers swooped in and blew the Rangers away with a much bigger offer.

Jeff Wilson writes the Rangers aren't close on anything, and likely will leave the Winter Meetings today in the same place they were in when they arrived.

Anthony Castrovince says that, by striking early and landing Fielder, the Rangers are now in a position to be patient.

Richard Durrett says the Rangers don't have any sense of urgency to make a move right now.
