Rangers press conference notes

New, comments

The Rangers had their season-ending press conference today, and you can read write-ups on it from Evan Grant here, Richard Durrett here, and Anthony Andro here.

The one thing that jumps out is that the front office expects to have a payroll budget similar to what the Rangers had in 2009, which was right around $68 million.  While the Rangers won't have a ton of money to spend -- they owe about $30 million to Kevin Millwood, Michael Young, and Ian Kinsler, plus another couple of million on the Vicente Padilla and Frank Catalanotto buyouts -- that should keep them from being forced to move guys for payroll reasons.
