  4. Bits: Nelson Cruz quietly producing

    Eric Karabell

    Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz fell to the 13th round, on average, in ESPN live drafts prior to this season, which seemed a bit strange, but it made him a nice bargain. Sure, there's outfield depth this season and Cruz has had trouble staying o...

  6. Moreland no longer Rangers' 'weak link'

    Eric Karabell

    A month ago, the focus on Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland was on how he was the weak link in a strong lineup and should be replaced in the lineup by hotshot prospect Jurickson Profar. Ian Kinsler would slide from second base to first base ...

  11. What's wrong with Michael Young?

    Eric Karabell

    Sometimes the end of the line comes a bit early for not only fantasy owners, but real teams. I was reminded of this when the Seattle Mariners sent Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees on Monday night, getting shockingly little for a once-great playe...

  15. Oswalt a popular add, but should he be?

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps it's just me, but when I look at right-hander Roy Oswalt, who agreed to terms with the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, I don't see a fantasy (or real-life ) savior. I see an experienced starting pitcher who can provide some decent innings...
