Filed for Free Agency

All 7 of the eligible Rangers have filed as free agents.  The players are:

  • Andruw Jones
  • Omar Vizquel
  • Ivan Rodriguez
  • Hank Blalock
  • Marlon Byrd
  • Eddie Guardado
  • Juaquin Benoit

The Rangers are definitely interested in keeping Byrd and Vizquel.  Byrd may be priced too high to keep though.  Last season Byrd had a .283 avg., 20 HRs, 66, runs, and lead the team with 89 RBIs.  Pudge might be coming back, but Salty is coming off surgery on his arm and we still have Teagarden, so our depth at C might not be much of a problem.  “Everyday Eddie” is considering retiring.


I like Byrd, but he may be too expensive to keep.
