T.R. Sullivan at MLB.com talked to Rangers manager Ron Washington, and to him apparently the team is "ready to buy."
"We'll make a deal," Washington said. "I don't know who we'll make a deal with, but we'll probably do something."
It's an interesting viewpoint, as Scott Miller at CBS Sports reports that the Rangers found themselves so financially strapped in June that the equipment team only ordered enough baseballs to get through July. Other clubs officials, according to Sullivan, say the possibility to make additions is "below average." The Rangers are in need of starting pitching, with health concerns surrounding Vicente Padilla and Kevin Millwood.
