The Texas Rangers can approach the offseason in any number of ways. It won’t be long before GM Jon Daniels signals his decided approach.
Baseball’s Winter Meetings are a week away. They will be held December 9th through the 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Suiting, don’t you think? Player representatives will work their magic and General Managers will look to take a few gambles on free agents. This is the time of the offseason when the hot stove really heats up.
How will the Texas Rangers approach the Winter Meetings? That’s a crapshoot in itself.
GM Jon Daniels is not typically one to sit quietly. He loves to go after notable names, in hopes that one or two will trigger quicker team success. Recent history indicates he loves that a little too much.
The Rangers’ outlook is certainly getting brighter, but they are likely still a couple of years away from returning to contention. So, a case could be made for Daniels to act aggressively in order to speed up the timeline. Though, a case could also be made for Daniels to act passively in order to protect the timeline.
What will he do?
