Gagne is definately on the block and with only one year left on Tex's contract and the Ranger's long history of refusing to pay players what they're worth once they deveolp i'm sure he's on his way out too (hopefully not)
i wouldnt be opposed to locking up the infield the way it is, we dont have a decent outfielder on our team with the exception of what cruz has shown in just the last couple of weeks.
Cruz hasn't played in the last few weeks. Marlon Byrd took his spot and has been pretty much kicking ass since. Young is the only piece of the regular infield that has performed somewhat up to par this year. Kinsler hasn't done shit since April, Tex is very average, and Hank's been hurt for almost a month.
When the Texas Fucking Rangers whoop your ass 2 games in a row, that's considered struggling in my book. Toronto is decent now, but at the time the Rangers played them, they were last in the AL East.
Hey, they can't win 'em all even if they are playing the Rangers. He's got talent but doesn't have the right leadership/coaching around him to do anything with it.
Again, had we been able to keep those other guys I listed, the Rangers would be in a whole lot better shape than they are right now and most certainly would be contending for a AL Pennant if not a World Series.
