The Rangers have told Frank Catalanotto that he will not be on the Opening Day roster. It’s official. Andruw Jones is on the team.

The Rangers instead released Catalanotto to make room for Jones.

Cat will land on his feet………………….couldn’t help it. Sorry.

If nothing else – the saga is over.

Thanks for that, Hefe. We tend to forget that sports are the toy department of life.

I think they should put a urinal in JDs office with Cat’s name on it so when Hicks comes by to check on his investment he can see where the money went…….Jones better make this work………don’t make it another Galarraga story……

This is no problem. If Jones bombs we have insurance in Max Ramirez.

Bottom line is that it’s Tom Hick’s money, I do trust Daniels and Ryan in making the decision to drop Catalanoto and keep Jones. If it works out our lineup is just that much more potent. Do you realize that we have a line up that could have 10 or 11 guys in double figures in homers ( I leave Andrus out of the mix)? Now if the pitching works…..

Oh no! I sense a Cat sighting coming on either Oakland, LA or Seattle. Just like when Cat played in Toronto, he will blister Ranger pitching and yes I go with the concensus(sp), Andruw BETTER make this work or they will be another uprising in Arlington and Ron will be gone. Maybe Mr. Hicks should consider firing himself if this blows up in his face.

As much as I hate to see Cat go, there really hasn’t been a spot for him to play ever since hank hurt his arm and couldn’t play 3B on a regular basis. Even when Murph got hurt last year, Cat’s playing time didn’t really increase very much. I wish him the best and I hope he goes to the NL so he doesn’t hurt the team as much. As far as Jones goes, I figure he has a 60-90 day window to prove that he has figured it out and if he doesn’t then Boggs is back to take his place. What I am curious about is that I have read that Jones will be the cleanup hitter against LHP……If he is good enough to be the primary RBI guy vs. lefties, why is he not good enough to be in the lineup against RHP? Do any of you recall a platoon player being the cleanup hitter? Hamilton wont see much to hit if the #4 guy can’t produce.

Hey fred, i thought we were only posting once here!!!!! Hicks refuses to pay debts but pays Cat $6 million to go away???? Maybe the holding company can sue Cat and get there funds. Anyone think we would like a do over on letting DeRosa walk because he wanted an everyday position? He sure would look good at third base right now. But no we had to have Blalock. I would have let Blalock go into free agency and kept Cat.
