Thursday a.m. Rangers stuff

We're all waiting for C.J. Wilson to decide where he's going, although for Rangers fans, it is a question of whether he'll be going to a division rival or to another league, whether he'll be bringing the Rangers back a first round draft pick (if he signs with Anaheim) or a second round draft pick (if he signs with Florida).

Ken Rosenthal writes that the Rangers are "no longer a factor" in the C.J. Wilson bidding because they wouldn't go five years for Wilson.

Joey Matches is not happy about the idea of Wilson landing in Anaheim.

Anthony Andro writes that the Rangers are fine with leaving the Winter Meetings with the same team that they entered the meetings with. Andro writes that, despite not bringing back C.J. Wilson or signing free agent target Mark Buehrle, the Rangers are prepared to go forward with Neftali Feliz in their rotation.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Ron Washington has confidence in Feliz as a starter.

Jeff Wilson has a story on the Rangers' missing out of Buehrle and C.J., and the likelihood that the Rangers will stand pat at this point, given the dearth of other free agent starting pitchers and the high price of trading for a Matt Garza or a Gio Gonzalez.

Interestingly, Evan Grant tweets this morning that he doesn't think the Rangers are going to be going hard after Yu Darvish, who will be posted today. The speculation has long been that, if he was posted, he would be the Rangers' top priority this offseason.

T.R. Sullivan has a story on the Rangers talking to Scott Boras yesterday, primarily about reliever Mike Gonzalez, although Prince Fielder's name also apparently came up.

Gil Lebreton has a column about where the Rangers stand right now in terms of offseason moves, and what their options are moving forward.

Drew Davison's notes talk about the Rangers "checking in" with Scott Boras on Prince Fielder, and where Michael Young will hit in the lineup in 2012.
