Jeff Wilson has a story in the S-T about the changes in the way teams can spend money on amateur talent, and how that will effect the Rangers, who have spent money aggressively in Latin America lately.  Someone (I forget who) suggested that these changes have the potential to make what is already a somewhat unseemly process even more sketchy, as there is now the potential for side deals and under the table payments as teams seek to skirt the cap.  The whole Latin America scene already was reminiscent of NCAA recruiting, and it wouldn't surprise me if we ended up seeing stories of houses and cars purchased for parents and no-show jobs in the next few years.

Peter Gammons has a story about the Rangers, focusing on the signing of Joe Nathan and the move of Neftali Feliz to the rotation, while also talking about the young talent the Rangers have accumulated in the minors.  Gammons says the plan all along had been to move Feliz to the rotation this spring.
