Good morning.

Stefan Stevenson writes about the official signing of Andrew Cashner who is excited to play for Texas (and getting to grow his beard back).

Eno Sarris over at Fangraphs looks at ways that Cashner can make good on the Rangers' bet for a bounceback season from the ex-TCU Horned Frog.

T.R. Sullivan takes a look at a slew of promotions and reshuffling in the front office as the Rangers begin the process of divvying up the departed Thad Levine's responsibilities.

Jim Bowden has the Rangers in the "Trending Up / Favorites" position in his status check for all 30 teams.

Samuel Hale writes about the likely departure of Derek Holland and how his time in Texas could teach us a thing or two about being human.

Finally, Pudge Rodriguez is on the ballot for the Hall of Fame for the first time and, unless the totally infallible clan of baseball writers screw this up, he should be wearing a T on his cap in Cooperstown next summer.

Have a good day.
