Friday Rangers links

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Better late than never, we have the Friday links

Technical difficulties have slowed us down, but aren't going to stop us from bringing you the daily Texas Rangers news and links...

Evan Grant has a story about the ongoing Masahiro Tanaka situation, and how it has all of MLB in limbo right now.

Gil Lebreton thinks the Rangers are in a situation where adding Shin-Soo Choo is a need, rather than a luxury, and that they need to go ahead and pay what it is going to take to get him.

Jon Daniels talked yesterday about the adrenaline rush that comes when a big deal is consummated.

Gerry Fraley's blog post about the Rangers signing Daniel McCutchen has the headline "Texas Rangers add veteran pitcher with steroid history," because if there's a dark lining to any move, Fraley will make sure to focus on it.

Grant says that for J.P. Arencibia to rebound and be more productive than last season, he needs to have better plate discipline.
