Lofton is a drifter player looking for a paycheck. He's not what the Rangers needed and thats why he's getting shopped. Daniels is finally realizing his moves didn't work and is now going to have to essentially blow the team up and start over.
Had he kept GMJ, he could have signed him for less and had a long-term player to build around. Sorry to burst your bubble, but 33 is significantly younger than 40.
Not only will GMJ have better #'s at the end of the year, but his team will be playing in the post-season while Lofton may or may not be on the Rangers and may or may not have a job.
Its the thinking of your ilk that have the Rangers where they are: DEAD LAST IN THE MLB.

I'd take Matthews, Jr., over Lofton any day, though.
I love how he skews the salaries, but forgets the fact that GMJ has out performed him all year long and his team is in 1st place while Lofton's is in last. Geee, I bet the Angels are really upset about that.

And heaven forbid GMJ has a Game 7 Pennant Winning Homer . . . you might as well delete your account.
Maston, let him keep digging his own grave. Not only has he done it with this but he's also done it with his 49'ers and how they are just going to supposedly kill everyone this season since they spent $80 million on a DB.
