The hot stove should be heating back up soon and it will be interesting to see what the competition does leading up to Spring Training. It’s my belief that the Texas Rangers might make one big move, but I also won’t be surprised if Jon Daniels decides to stay quiet for a bit longer. Not much longer until we have Texas Rangers baseball again!

Only 55 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training!
