    Sounds like the Rangers are preparing to lose Wilson.


    ARLINGTON -- The Rangers have offered salary arbitration to free-agent left-hander C.J. Wilson, meaning they will receive two compensatory Draft picks if he declines the offer and signs with another team.

    Wilson has until 11 p.m. CT on Dec. 7 to accept the offer. Wilson, who was 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA in 34 regular-season starts for the Rangers this past season, is being pursued by several teams. He met in person with the Angels earlier this week and has another meeting scheduled with the Marlins early next week.

    Maybe that gives credence to the rumor Rosenthal is spreading about the Rangers might be interested in Matt Garza.


    Even after signing closer Joe Nathan and shifting Neftali Feliz to the rotation, the Texas Rangers are sending our signals that they haven’t ruled out getting adding another starting pitcher.

    Yesterday, we learned that the Rangers intend to continue their efforts to re-sign C.J. Wilson and should those fall through, they could still look to add a veteran arm via free agency or trade. In recent weeks, the Rangers have been linked to fellow free agent southpaw Mark Buehrle, whose price tag will come in a few million shy of where Wilson’s next deal figures to be.

    Today, Ken Rosenthal named Cubs right hander Matt Garza as a possible trade target for the Texas ballclub.

    While Rosenthal’s tweet should be viewed as mere spitballing, Garza would make sense should the Rangers decide to add an arm.

    Where does "The braggart" come from? I don't recall seeing or hearing anything that would suggest anything like this.

    I don't see the Yankees signing CJ.

    And I'm very OK with that.

    Yeah, and the Angels would love it considering how well our last two Angels worked for us.

    If he does go there, I hope they rue it just as our last two Angels made them rue it. :laugh2:

    Ditto. At least not for the 90 million that I'm hearing.
