The Rangers have a monster TV contract and tons of postseason revenue. They could swing it.

That doesn't kick in for a couple of years, 2015 I think. They could, but I think the FO is just being cautious about monster contracts atm. Got a few players to lock up. Maybe if nothing is going on with him come January, they might make an offer.

It doesn't go into effect until after 2014, but they received a very large signing bonus this year.

A starting pitcher's worst nightmare.

it's going to be weird not having Luis Montanez floating through the Cubs minor league system again.

Wonder if the Rangers will consider Pena if the price/years don't come down on Prince.

I think they'll stick with Moreland, unless someone wants him in a trade for a pitcher.

I said this 11 days ago! Granted the signing didn't actually take place until today.

Jose Molina signed a one-year deal with the Rays. As pointed out by Mark Simon on Twitter, Mike Fast's BP study showed how strongly Molina's framing benefits pitchers. Small move that could make a (relatively) large difference.

Seriously, all credit to Mike Fast though. It makes me wonder what major league teams are really paying attention. Rays have a strong rotation, strong defense and now they just added a guy who's going to make it even more difficult for opposing teams to score for just less than $2MM/year.
