If you've been on the fence about getting a full or half season plan, 2023 is going to be the time to go ahead and pull the trigger. Trust me.

Nailed it. And JD is coming with them. We just can't escape the greatness that is Jon Daniels

If it did, wouldn't I just go ahead and say the players name?

The owners are going to buy the stadium outright and as a result will add $50M in additional salary to the team above Perez' QO?

OR... maybe RBiA lease expires and the Rangers will no longer be paying for the RBiA and that will enable the owners to spend more?!

$15M purchase?!

Two things I've never been accused of... over-thinking and over-analyzing.

But now that you mentioned it...

Rangers minor leaguers who are Rule 5 eligible.

Josh Jung
Jonathan Ornelas
Owen White
Cole Winn
Luisangel Acuna
Dustin Harris
Antoine Kelly

Jung is on the 40 man already. Acuna and Winn MUST NOT enter Rule 5 draft. Same for Owen White and Dustin Harris IMHO. So that's a minimum of four slots needed.

If at 34, that gets to 38 so two FA openings.

Now that the 40 is set for Rule V... well, until we make more moves.

My vote for Bounce-Back player of 2023 will be Odorizzi

22 P on the 40, now.

Let's look at SP.
Perez (31-L): 32 GS, 2.89, 1.258, 196.1 IP, 169 SO
Gray (30-R): 24 GS, 3.96, 1.131, 127.1 IP, 134 SO
Dunning (27-R): 29 GS, 4.46, 1.435, 153.1 IP, 137 SO
Odorizzi (32-R): 22 GS, 4.40, 1.326, 106.1 IP, 86 SO
Otto (26-R): 27 GS, 4.64, 1.334, 135.2 IP, 107 SO

Hearn (27-L): 13 GS, 5.13 ERA
Ragans (24-L): 9 GS, 4.95 ERA
Howard (25-R): 8GS, 7.41 ERA

Serviceable ... stable... key is to remain healthy. I'm hoping Dunning puts it together with all the veterans around him. Could still use a ToTR guy.

As is? Not terrible.

Kudos to CY for getting Perez.

That's not what our rotation is going to wind up looking like.

The only 3 I think will stick are Perez, Gray and Odorizzi. I think the Rangers acquire a big arm, deGrom or Rodon via FA, and maybe get another guy through a trade.

If it were to remain what it is, I think Ragans & Dunning are likely your 4 & 5 guys. Hearn is done as a starter IMO. Howard & Otto are either bullpen guys or depth at AAA.

I also wouldn't be terribly surprised if the Rangers pull off a big trade with an established position player like Nathanial Lowe, either for a pitcher or for a big bat. Regardless, I don't think the roster as it stands today is going to be what they go into spring training with.

Should be a fun couple of months.

Agree that Hearn is done as a starter. The results just aren't there and he's much better in relief.

I've also thrown out the Lowe plus several prospects idea for an established starter idea a month or two back. A lot of teams like to get an established MLB level player (along with the minor leaguers) if they are going to trade an established SP. That pretty much would leave Lowe or possibly Garcia. Doubt we'd trade Seager or Semien, and most teams wouldn't want to take on their contracts anyway if they are trading a SP.

Doubt it would be concert related -- being a season ticket holder wouldn't really impact that.

Well, STH get early concert ticket options. If we got Taylor Swift tix, I'd buy and resell in a heart beat.

Eh, not really. Rangers are lazy like the Cowboys and just send out generic passwords like 'FOOTBALL'. All the ticket scalpers are buying the same time season ticket holders are. I've pushed for a while for them to make the password your account # or something, but they don't really want to go to the effort.
