Late in the season with an off-day yesterday, there's obviously not much out there today.

Evan Grant says the Rangers need to make a decision this offseason on a starting catcher, with Gerald Laird being the most likely choice if they expected to contend in 2009, and the most expendable if they are rebuilding.  He also notes that Jarrod Saltalamacchia's late-season injury complicates matters, since it means that his trade value is likely significantly diminished, giving the Rangers less flexibility in deciding who they can move and what they are going to do.

Jeff Wilson praises the job Ron Washington did this season in keeping the team playing hard, contrasting what happened with the Rangers after a bad start to what happened to the Mariners after a bad start.
