Good morning.

Evan Grant evaluates first base heading into next season with Mitch Moreland set to become a free agent and potential heir apparent Joey Gallo having a frustrating 2016.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers are holding their annual organizational meetings in Surprise this week with pitching development being the main focus.

In case you're wondering, according to Jerry Crasnick, no, Jonathan Lucroy doesn't regret vetoing the trade to Cleveland this summer. (And why would he? Cleveland wouldn't even assure him playing time behind the plate next season and also it's Cleveland.)

Sullivan writes that construction for Texas "Flavor Town" Live! Presented By Guy Fieri begins this week and nothing can stop it. However, the House That Donkey Sauce Built won't be erected next door until Arlington residents give it the go-ahead next month.

Finally, the DMN Ballsy Podcast crew debate bringing the party at Napoli's back to Texas for a third go-round and whether or not Yu Darvish actually wants to be in Texas in the future.

Have a great day.
