Another day with little in the way of Rangers news.

T.R. Sullivan's blog notes include a mention that Derrick Turnbow can ask for his release on March 31 and on May 1, if he isn't on the major league roster at those points.

And Kenny Williams denies that the ChiSox are working on a deal sending Jermaine Dye and Aaron Poreda to the Rangers for Michael Young.  Personally, I think that would be a steal for the Rangers, but I can't imagine Chicago would do that.

And for those wondering why the Rangers would, hypothetically, want Dye, he'd probably DH and hit 4th, allowing the Rangers to deal Blalock.  They'd still have to go find a shortstop for 2009, of course, but there are quite a few out there, and Orlando Cabrera on a one year deal would probably be the most viable.

But that trade isn't going to happen, so it is moot...
