Poll: Should Texas have matched for Ian Desmond?

Ian Desmond signed a 5 year, $70M deal with the Rockies that could be 6/$83M if Colorado picks up his option. Should Texas have matched?

Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Ian Desmond is apparently going to be a Colorado Rockie, as the club is signing him to a 5 year, $70 million deal that includes a sixth year team option that could make it worth 6 years, $83 million.

The Rangers had interest in bringing him back after a solid 2016 campaign, though apparently not at that price.

So the question I pose to you, LSB reader -- should the Rangers have matched the offer Desmond got from Colorado, and kept him in Texas for 5/$70M?
