    “The Rangers’ sale to Chuck Greenberg is on track to be finalized on April 1st”

    That would be one kick ass April Fool’s Joke! haha

    Is Ramirez no catching, hurt, or not ready yet?

      He hasn’t really proved that he can handle a full season. I think he should get some time though behind the plate.

    for all the cubs fans that couldnt get over harden……… is it starting to look like a smart move yet?

    Yeah Daniels you did make the mistake of not getting Beckett here, but oh well I forgive you. Whatever happened to Taylor Teagarden and Max Ramirez or are they just distant memories? The Rangers have great catching depth. I think Teagarden is ready and Ramirez bat is looking good he still needs a year or two to get CATCHING down. As far as Harden goes the reason we are so disappointed is because it seems the only thing he can use without feeling discomfort is a fastball and a change-up. He can’t go to his splitter and he can’t go to his slider and without those he isn’t much more than a #3 SP.

    I think it should be Chris Davis that gets traded and I can think a number of teams that would be interested. The Padres may be interested if the Adrian Gonzalez trade goes through.

    Justin Smoak will be ready by mid-season and I expect him to be a major fixture in the Rangers lineup.

      That would be hilarious to get A-Gon back to the Rangers for a huge load while the Padres gave up essentially bad players for him.

      I think they would rather ask for Smoak though, since Davis hasn’t figured it out yet. That team would be fantastic with him though.

        I think you miss the point…

        SPAN is saying that if Adrian Gonzalez gets traded then the Padres might look to the Rangers 1B surplus to fill their hole. He’s not stating that Gonzalez come back the Rangers. I think that’s extremely unlikely.

        Also extremely unlikely is a Rangers 1B going to the Padres. The Rangers will be wanting a TORP at the deadline and the Padres don’t have one.

    Well thats sort of what the Rangers need, a dominate pitcher, they did look stupid for the amount but not for the signing. Harden ROCKED the Rangers in Oakland when he was healthy. I do not question why Daniels did this he probably wanted Harden that bad that he would guarantee that money. If I were Washington at this point I would start like, Scott Feldman for game one and work on Harden’s health see whats wrong and see if it is fixable don’t do what every other team has done and just throw him out there and hope for the best. Someone needs to show Harden some love and willingness to wait him out if a team could figure out WHY he is injury prone he could be amazing, if not he is destined for the Mark Prior status of injury.
