Friday a.m. Rangers stuff

Friday morning Rangers news and links

Happy Friday, everyone.

Shin-Soo Choo passed his physical, and there's a 2:30 press conference to officially announce his signing.

The S-T has some notes on the Choo press conference being this afternoon, as well as the Masahiro Tanaka posting.

Rob Neyer has been writing about the M's decision to trade Choo for Ben Broussard, and got an email from then-Seattle g.m. Bill Bavasi about why the deal was made.

Jeff Moore at the Hardball Times says the prospect with the skill-set most similar to Choo is the Dodgers' Joc Pederson.

And Richard Durrett asks if the Rangers will make a significant run after Tanaka.  Spoiler alert:  the answer is, maybe.
