Here are some highlights.
Comment Chinese Wholesale Jerseys
From Bennie . Seeing how the overall performance of the Rangers this year has shown almost a direct correlation to how well Josh has hit, will that cause the Ranger front office to be willing to spend even more for Josh in the offseason than they would have before this year.? Has the way things have played out this year done anything more to show them how much this team needs Josh?
Evan Grant: It’s gonna be so tricky, Bennie. So much to consider. Hate to sound evasive, but I just think this is going to be one of the all time most complicated situations out there. But what is clear: This team, as constructed, goes as Josh Hamilton jersey cheap does offensively.
Comment From JFK . Please compare the 2012 roster to the one for 2013. Who do you think is gone: Hamilton, Elvis, Napoli, Moreland, Oswalt or who? What about MY? Isn’t his contract up after the 2013 season?
Evan Grant: I think the two big questions are Hamilton and Elvis. One because of free agency and one because of pending free agency/value. It’s going to be a very interesting offseason.
Comment From Rick . Might the Rangers be better off extending the contract of a 23 year old All Star shortstop this off season, than re signing a 31 year old outfielder, for a lot more money and a lot more uncertainty? I’d let Elvis and Boras know that if they can’t extend at this time, they will look to trade him before next season.
Evan Grant: They might look to sign both. Both will be difficult signs. Hamilton will be difficult because he is the No. 1 free agent on the market. Elvis will be difficult because his agent is Scott Boras.
Comment From Bennie . Did the handling of Oswalt for several days before he got the start on Saturday show that the Rangers knew several days prior to announcing it that Oswalt would ge t the start. Didn’t Oswalt go a week or so without pitching on a club that thought it necessary to carry 13 pitchers?
Evan Grant: I don’t think the Rangers really became aware or the Dempster issue until Wednesday and they were still trying to figure out ways to get him into Canada as of Friday morning, so, no, I don’t think there was some long term recognition of how potentially disruptive the issue could be.
