Ramblings: Rangers, de la Rosa, Beltran

    Victor Martinez is one of the names
    that Texas may be looking at.
  • Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports believes that the Texas Rangers might have enough in their budget to sign two premiere free-agents: Cliff Lee and Victor Martinez.  They would first need ownership to approve a budget increase, pushing Texas' payroll to about $90M.  They will have a terrific club if they can re-sign Lee and add a terrific hitter in Martinez.
  • Cliff Lee isn't the only lefty the Yankees are talking to, as they have been talking to free-agent Jorge de la Rosa (according to the NY Daily News).  It looks like New York believes de la Rosa would be their consolation prize of choice. Jorge has always been a strike-out specialist (113 in 121.2 innings in 2010) but has lacked command throughout his career, with a whopping 1.523 career WHIP. I'm not so sure he'd be a good fit for the Yankees, as pitching in such a large market might be tough on a guy who has pitched with KC, MIL, and COL throughout his 7 year career.
  • New York Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran told the media that he would indeed waive his no-trade clause if the Mets came to him with a deal.  He also said he'd be willing to move to right-field if new GM Sandy Alderson.
