They went crazy last year - so you never know how nutty they will go.

    Semien Seager and DeGrom all high chance of being traded in 2-3 years unless they have NTC or 5/10 rights and don't want to go.

    8:44pm: Levi Weaver of the Athletic reports the specific financial breakdown (on Twitter). deGrom will make $30MM next season, followed by successive $40MM salaries in 2024-25, $38MM in 2026 and $37MM in 2027. The option season does not come with any guaranteed money, and terms of the option remain unreported

    Give them Verlander and it gets interesting. Besides the 4 they’d have depth with Owen White and as a wild card, Leiter later in the season if he figures it out

    As mentioned, they have a lot of quality bats, just not the star kind. I don’t know anything about their BP

    I don't think they're as bad as some are portraying at all. Bullpen is okay. But they aren't adding 3 top 15 guys on top of this, hah!!!

    Last year was a trip, but you have to follow up that path now, or what was the point, falling back on Danger's point, it makes sense. I don't think it's as bad as you guys think. He throws triple digits with a 93/94 mph wipeout painted slider, deep into games, lol. He's fucking filthy.

    DeGrom is amazing but that contract is asinine. The guy will be lucky to crack 500 innings over the 5 years of the deal, there's just so much likely dead money in this deal. The Rangers said they were going to spend "stupid money" last offseason, and that's just continued.

    Basically any pitcher that you sign to a long term commitment immediately has TJ risk even if they've never had injury problems at all in the past. I get the recent shoulder, forearm issues with Degrom, but he rarely missed a start for 4 years from 2017 to 2020. The doctors do medicals. If they think he's fully healthy and his injury risk is only marginally higher than any other 34 year old pitcher you'd be signing why not go for it. The Rangers from a pure talent perspective will open 2023 with one of the most talent pitchers in baseball history. No guts, no glory. If they get 3 out of 5 years and help return their franchise to relevance and glory, it's probably worth it.

    Holy shit he's 34? Thought he was younger.

    Half of the Rangers player salary is going to be on the IL

    Can't think of any teams that had a few stars and a bunch of nothing and won. Look at the Angels.
