The Rangers are the center of attention as they prepare to play in their first World Series. Here's the latest on the American League champions (click here for the latest on the NL pennant winners):
- Rangers assistant GM Thad Levine and pitcher Eddie Guardado tell MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan that GM Jon Daniels has a keen sense of humor. Chuck Greenberg, the team's CEO, confirmed to Sullivan that he'll work out an extension for Daniels after the season.
- As Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News explains, Daniels is all about scouting.
- Grant takes a detailed look at how the Rangers assembled this year's edition of the team and explains how Tim Lincecum was nearly a part of it.
- As Yahoo's Jeff Passan explains, Cliff Lee's arrival changed the Rangers' attitude.
- Dustin Pedroia said on WEEI that he hopes the Yankees don't sign Lee this offseason.
- Vladimir Guerrero told Carlos A. Nava of the Texas Spanish Language paper Al Dia that he signed with the Rangers for a number of reasons. “One of the principal reasons I signed with Texas is that I knew they had a team that was planning on going far," Guerrero said. “The other is that the heart and soul of this team is Latino, on and off the field.” (Translated by MLBTR's Nick Collias).
