Read up, while it is still online at the paper's website. But a couple of money quotes to commemorate for posterity:
1. The Rangers have lost the offseason. Yeah, I know it’s obvious, but it bears repeating. Consider this: The Rangers wanted Torii Hunter and he went to Detroit. They wanted Russell Martin and he went to Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh! They wanted Zack Greinke and lost him, Koji Uehara and lost him. They looked poised to trade for either Justin Upton or James Shields or both and got neither. Their acquisitions this winter: Re-signing a backup catcher who hit .196 and adding a reliever who won’t be ready until mid-May. Oh, and the pushed the club all-time hits and games played leader right out the door. There are other guys out there on the free agent and trade market, but all of them were not primary or even secondary targets when the offseason began.
5. The most disconcerting feeling out of all this: Why is it that nobody seems to want to play for the Rangers, a team that has three straight 90-win seasons, a pair of World Series berths and money to spend? That is something the Rangers are going to have to look at internally and potentially come up with some hard answers.
