Monday morning things

Another morning where the only Ranger related news is coming out of Boston...

The Boston Globe has some Ranger mentions in an article about the additions of Brad Penny and Josh Bard to the BoSox, saying that Boston wants to add a young catcher, but is finding the price for Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Taylor Teagarden to be very steep.  The Bard deal shouldn't really have much impact on the Salty and Teagarden talks, as he's expected to be the backup.  However, adding Penny could make Boston more likely to part with some of their young pitching.

The Boston Herald says Boston has "all but given up" on re-signing Jason Varitek, and continues to talk trade with the Rangers and D-Backs about catching.
