Evan Grant did a chat session at the DMN today, and it was one of the better Q&A sessions I've seen in a while, in terms of substantive issues addressed.
Among other things...
- Grant thinks DeRosa's play will allow the Rangers to be more patient with Ian Kinsler's rehab, but that Kinsler is going to be the starting second baseman when he returns.
- The Rangers would have been in on Bronson Arroyo, but were a bad match...he says the BoSox wouldn't have taken David Dellucci for him, but would have probably insisted on Kevin Mench to get a deal done.
- C.J. Wilson's confidence and stuff make the Rangers more willing to let him take his lumps out there than they would with a lot of pitchers.
