Rangers Seeking Second Base Help

The Rangers have entered the market for second basemen with Ian Kinsler hitting the disabled list with a groin strain, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

MLBTR's Ben Nicholson-Smith profiled the second base market two weeks ago.  Ty Wigginton, Ryan Theriot, Kelly Johnson, Jose Lopez, Adam Kennedy, Jeff Keppinger, Jamey Carroll, Cristian Guzman, Jeff Baker, and Andy LaRoche are the main names out there.  Morosi reminds us that the Rangers have already been connected to Guzman.

well what good does that do…? didn’t you guys just get Smoak.

Neither Smoak or Crash Davis will be anything more than bench bats in the future. Both highly overrated. Texas should have kept A-Gon before dumping him for nothing.

They are 8.5 games up, whats wrong with letting Blanco play 2b for awhile? As long as Kins is back before the post season I don’t see why they need to acquire a 2b

Don’t know if you can trust him coming back healthy. He’s been injury prone his whole career (never played more than 144 games).

How about Ryan Theriot for Cliff Lee… Anyone? Bueller?

Nah, Lee isn’t scrappy is he? Everyone knows scrap wins games. Theriot is off the scrap meter! Wait, why is my keyboard adding s’s in front of c’s?

I like the idea of Jeff Baker going to Texas. Not that he’s incredible or anything but he fits the bill.

Yep, nothing more than a journeyman but he’d work in TX and would come cheap. Descent fill in.

Wiggington was already on the Rangers’ rader for RH 1B bat. Trading for him would kill two birds with one stone.

Kelly Johnson would rake at Arlington. He can slide to DH/OH too when Kinsler comes back.

I’m available. I’d do it for the league minimum. In fact, a couple a Mc’ds milkshakes would do.

WTF? I don’t get this. They have Esteban German playing 2B at OKC and Blanco and Arias in Arlington…Arias and German are righties and Blanco switches…so why???
