I'm not so sure.

It is. 2 years of control for a CF that is only good because of his name. The guy can't stay in the majors. Up and down every year. A hard throwing reliever kind of hurts but getting one of the better starters in the league.

It absolutely is. The bullpen are the easiest pitching spots to replenish.

I think it's worth it for the rangers, definitely. Deshields sucks honestly although I like Clase. If Cluber comes back to form it's a fantastic deal. But he's 33 and coming off a major injury so you never know. But you didn't give up much so the risk isn't there.

I'm not expecting Cy Young numbers but he should go nicely with Lynn and Minor.

I do think the Rangers gad to do somethimg though. They lost out on Wheeler and tried to go cheap with Rendon. They needed a name to generate buzz for the new stadium and the fans were on a warpath.

Should have taken the title from them as well.

Of course he was ready.


I used to joke about testing Altuve for PEDs. Now I wonder if I wasn't far from the truth.
