Saturday a.m. things

Evan Grant has some quotes from Jon Daniels about the possibility of Nolan Ryan joining the Rangers as team president, with Daniels having positive things to say about it.

Anthony Andro has an item up saying that the Rangers and Ian Kinsler are still discussing a long-term deal, but aren't real close.

Andro and Grant also both mention that there are some discussions about bringing Kevin Mench back on a minor league deal. The Rangers have apparently had some interest in a righthanded bench bat, to provide some insurance in case Nelson Cruz and Jason Botts flame out, but I don't know how interested Mench would really be in coming back to Texas to, most likely, spend the bulk of the year in Oklahoma.

T.R. Sullivan has an update on Omar Beltre and Alexi Ogando. Nothing has changed. They aren't coming to the U.S. anytime soon.

Sullivan also says that Daniels has talked to several teams about Armando Galarraga, and hopes to get a deal done this weekend...
