Good morning, everyone.
Jeff Wilson takes a look at some free agent and trade possibilities for the Rangers this offseason, and notes that, while Jon Daniels is publicly downplaying the team's interest in big dollar players, Texas has a history of publicly saying they don't have much money to spend, and then making a big splash.
T.R. Sullivan takes a look at where things stand currently with the internal options at the various positions heading into the offseason.
Sullivan also has a story on the Rangers focusing on starting pitching this offseason, with a particular focus on trade possibilities, mentioning Andrew Cashner as someone the Rangers could pursue, as well as Ian Kennedy and various Reds pitchers who are approaching free agency.
Calvin Watkins has a piece on 10 free agents that the Rangers could pursue this offseason.
Colby Lewis says the Rangers have made him a contract offer, and he and the team are continuing to have discussions about him returning for 2015.
Evan Grant writes that Hector Ortiz is expected to replace Bengie Molina as catching instructor and first base coach for the Rangers in 2015.
And remember Koji Uehara? The Boston Red Sox re-signed him for $18 million over 2 years. That's a lot of money for a reliever.
