    keep seeing that pitching and cf are their biggest concerns. i dont see anyone mentioning the gaping hole at 1b the team has. gallo cant hit big league pitching. profar at 1b is a waste. beltre at first would be ok, but what happens at 3b then? i would say a 1b with power is a pretty big need. guess if they dont get ee then napoli fits that bill pretty well.

    Sources: #Rangers in frequent contact with #Pirates on McCutchen. Deal possible, but not close.

    Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassan
    Sources: Rangers have shown interest in Mark Trumbo. Just how strong it is remains to be seen, but Texas is looking for a right-handed bat.

    Evan Grant ‏@Evan_P_Grant
    Hearing Rangers maintain contact with Moreland. Deal not impossible, but only becomes likely if Moreland is willing to wait things out

    TR Sullivan ‏@Sullivan_Ranger
    Rangers interested in Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler, the right-handed bat people say will come in the form of Encarnacion, Trumbo or Napoli

    TR Sullivan ‏@Sullivan_Ranger
    Rangers ongoing talks with Reds about Billy Hamilton...some say Phillies might be willing to deal Odubel Herrera

    Pirates are going to find that not many are going to give them much for a declining player by most accounts.

    Rangers Notes: Daniels, Inciarte, Cobb, Tolleson, Hoying
    By Mark Polishuk | December 5, 2016 at 7:17pm CDT

    The latest from around the AL West…

    It is “unlikely” that the Rangers will sign a “big ticket” free agent, GM Jon Daniels told reporters (including Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News). Texas has been linked to the likes of Edwin Encarnacion, Ian Desmond, Mark Trumbo and other notable free agent names this winter, and the team has notable question marks at first base, center field and DH. If free agency isn’t as likely an option for the Rangers, they could continue to pursue trades.

    To that end…
    The Rangers asked the Braves about Ender Inciarte but talks “went nowhere,” Evan Grant tweets. Inciarte has drawn trade chatter ever since the Braves acquired him as part of the Shelby Miller trade with the D’Backs last offseason, but it is clear Atlanta regards the defensive standout as a building block in center field.

    Also from Grant in an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM (Twitter link), the Rangers don’t have interest in dealing Rougned Odor or Nomar Mazara. It would’ve been rather surprising to see Texas trade either young cornerstone player, though the Rangers have been linked to some big names in trade talks (i.e. Chris Sale) that would require a major return.

    Alex Cobb’s name has been discussed between the Rays and Rangers, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (via Twitter). The Rangers have targeted such Tampa pitchers as Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi and Drew Smyly in the past, though Cobb would theoretically come at a lower price tag. He is only under control through the 2017 season and he missed all of 2015 and most of 2016 due to Tommy John surgery.

    The Rangers are in ongoing talks with Shawn Tolleson about a reunion, MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports (Twitter link), as the club wants to bring the former closer back on a minor league deal. Tolleson elected to become a free agent after a very rough 2016 season that saw him lose his closing job in Texas, spend time on the 60-day DL with a back injury and ultimately get outrighted off the Rangers’ 40-man roster. The season was a stark contrast to 2014-15, when Tolleson posted very good numbers out of the Texas bullpen.

    Similarly, the Rangers are talking to outfielder Jared Hoying about a reunion, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram tweets. Hoying, who made his big league debut last season, was non-tendered by the Rangers earlier this week.

    It was time. He was just way too streaky. All or nothing with him.

    I really hope we get EE to fill the void.

    $5 million?!?!? We should have re-signed him if that was the price. There HAS to be a plan in place. One that does not involve Gallo and his 400 k's hopefully.

    At a certain point who cares if they are cheap, if they aren't very good.

    Man I hope that means we pass on McCutcheon. He looked like dog$#@! last year and I'm thinking he may be one of those guys that just falls off the edge instead of declining slowly. EE would be a good fit and give us some serious production at first. I like Mitch but he's consistently inconsistent his entire career

    Not that worried about him leaving. He played well over his true talent level those first few months and then came crashing down to earth. Did not feel comfortable going long term for him. I commend him for doing all he could to learn a premier OF position on the fly but he just was a liability out there. And we already have too many liabilities at that position.

    I really hope we have a plan at 1st base. Like EE.

    Agreed. JD isn't perfect but he's been good lately on his moves and having a plan.

    Also, not seeing why so many are so sad Mitch is gone. Not this thread but so many on FB. I get he was a fan favorite for many but he was way too up and down. We can do better. Like someone said, even if he's cheap, you have to move on. His act was old.

    Pure poker move. Reports say it's between us and Cleveland. Indians truly don't have much room to expand the budget, JD putting the decision in EE's corner.

    Agreed about pitching. This will be Yu's final season. Cole will be getting older. Holland is now gone (even though he sucked). Perez is so up and down. Colby is hanging on by a thread. And we all know have not had success bringing any of them up from the minors.

    So the tickets I got for the first playoff game - a single ticket was $30.

    I think it was actually more crowded for opening day than both playoff games. I went to all 3. Can't blame the start time since opening day was the same start time as Game 1 pretty much. Give or take an hour.

    I think it's the excitement of it being the first home game after baseball has been away for months. People look forward to it for a long time and will shell out well above face value to be there.

    And I guess with opening day you can plan ahead several months, whereas you only have about week(?) for the playoff games.

    That $#@! looks like amateur hour and goofy as $#@!, especially those seats out in left field above the first level. The current one built over 2 decades looks much better.

    But Arlington's citizens will pay for anything these billionaire owners ask them to.

    It's a lazy design. They took Minute Maid and put taller arches in the outfield, some JerryWorld isolated box sections, no Jumbotron in the 3rd deck of right field and a higher grade of the 3rd base side seating. A billion dollars for that $#@!? Good job, Arlington.

    This might be the worst looking stadium in MLB besides the Trop and Oakland.

    This looks like they took leftovers from 4-5 different ballpark designs and smashed them all together.

    Yeah that's horrible.

    Stupid Arlington voters got spooked by the "Dallas is trying to steal your team" propaganda that wasn't anywhere near true and just keep doing whatever rich folks tell them to.

    I'd much rather have a downtown Dallas stadium than Arlington.

    caught the end of an interview with the architect on the radio KRLD, i think, and he was asked about the Houston paper saying it looked like a juice box clone. He did not really deny but said they are more really borrowing from the existing Rangers ballpark with the arches than anything to do with houston. It looks like the car that Homer Simpson designed. They kept the arches, they kept greens hill because people said that liked that about the old park but it might not mesh with how the new design should look.

    The first comment on literally every post I've read about the stadium is that it is an embarrassing Enron Field recreation. How the hell did it not occur to the architects? And if it did, how the hell would that not have been perceived as a bad thing?
