Good morning. Welcome to November. It's the most rosterbatiest time of the year.

T.R. Sullivan writes about the news that the Rangers are unlikely to pick up Derek Holland's club option which would more than likely end Holland's tenure in Texas. We'll always have Game 4, I guess.

Evan Grant notes that the Rangers could still pick up Holland's option and then trade him with his $11 million salary for 2017 attracting suitors looking to revive the 2013 version of Holland. Imagine Ray Searage thisclose to transforming Holland into a modern day Tom Glavine and Holland stops him to quote his favorite Family Guy episode.

With the Holland domino likely to fall quickly, Jeff Wilson reacts to the future free agent feeding frenzy and where the Rangers stand with the World Series set to conclude no later than Wednesday.

Grant writes that center field will be priority #1 for Texas with both Ian Desmond and Carlos Gomez set to hit the open market.

Sullivan writes that Shawn Tolleson is open to re-signing with the Rangers though I bet Clayton Kershaw will bring his pal back to LA instead of Tolleson bringing Kershaw back to Texas as was his covert mission here all along.

Catching prospect Jose Trevino was named to the AFL All-Star team. Even though Tim Tebow didn't make the squad, you can still watch the game on MLB Network this Saturday.

Finally, the White Sox learned the hard way about when selling out goes wrong.

Have a nice day!
