    With Mike Trout....


    But I sure do hope so. I do think the Angels and Dodgers could be screwed.

    Well good sir Mike Olt is a third baseman and a damn fine one at that. I firmly believe he will be a solid player for years to come. Just need to get that experience which he won't get in Texas because of Beltre.

    As for Dickey I would like to have him but without giving too much up for him. I think the Mets are just being cheap in their negotiations with him.

    But anyway mainly wanted to say Olt is a third baseman.

    I would not be willing to trade Olt for Dickey. I do not want Dickey on the Rangers.

    I believe he was asking for 3 years $26M from the Mets. I would think the Rangers would do that, but he may be waiting for the Mets to cave.

    Berkman?! What the hell for? Go with the youth movement you had going. And to pay him $10 million?

    I don't see him being any better than Young. In fact I think he is worse. Slower and less versatile. But I suppose Berkman has some power. But my gosh the team doesn't have to revolve around power hitters. I just want people that can hit period.

    And this will also seem to put off playing Olt or Profar. What's the point of having top prospects only to never use them? I believe both are ready for the big league but of course will need time.

    I was okay with everything the Rangers had been doing this offseason. But this Berkman signing just doesn't make sense to me. And for that kind of cash, along with picking up Young's contract is just stupid.

    He has always seemed like a punk to me, and now he is ready for assisted living. Strange move. Desperate even.

    Wasn't him that dissed the Rangers a few years ago. So we brought him in. SMH. Personally I think he is washed up.

    It seems like a desperate move to try and appease fans.

    I was very surprised by this signing, too. I don't mind him on the team as a DH, but $10M is way too much to pay for his services. I doubt after 2 knee surgeries and 2 extra birthdays that he will be able to put up the 31 HRs and 94 RBIs he got in 2011.
