It’s no secret Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks is trying to sell the Rangers. I understand times are tough for everyone in this economy. But Hicks’ exit strategy is becoming insane and I believe it’s time for Major League Baseball to step in and take control here. The team has no money. Players are leaving the Rangers as if the entire city of Arlington has the plague.
Marlon Byrd is gone. So is Pudge Rodriguez, Omar Visquel, and they are shopping Kevin Millwood. The 2010 Rangers won’t be quite the same as the 2009 version that did pretty well with the exception of perhaps one more solid pitcher and hitter.
