Tuesday morning, and it is all about the Mike Maddux hiring.
Evan Grant says Maddux may be the Rangers' biggest free agent pitching acquisition of the offseason, and his article includes numerous Jon Daniels and Nolan Ryan quotes about the hiring.
I do find it interesting that there was no face-to-face meeting between Maddux and the Rangers prior to his being hired, although that suggests that he was their top target all along.
Jeff Wilson talks about how Maddux knows he's got a big job ahead of him in Texas.
Wilson also writes about the Rangers desire to move some of their surplus catching to get pitching help. He also notes that John Hart is part of the Ranger contingent at the GM meetings. Yay.
