Jarrod Saltalamacchia says that he thinks he's headed for Oklahoma if Gerald Laird isn't traded.

Jim Reeves writes that that is a bad idea, that the Rangers risk "losing emotionally" Salty by sending him down instead of keeping him in the majors.  Reeves also says, interestingly enough, that the Rangers wanted Jordan Schafer instead of Saltalamacchia when they were negotiating the Teixeira trade last summer, but the Braves wouldn't do that.

Evan Grant has a piece up saying that Luis Mendoza solidified his hold on the #5 job with his performance yesterday, and also mentions that Milton Bradley will not be ready to play the field when the season starts.
