Monday Morning Manager….Beltre, Ogando and Managers.
The Rangers don’t have to out pitchers Omar Beltre and Alexi Ogando on the 40-man roster right away.
That’s the word from general manager Jon Daniels. Because they have been on the restricted list, the Rangers can wait until the end of Spring Training.
That is not insignificant. The Rangers have a full 40-man roster right now. If they had to put both on right away, it would have meant having to drop two players. Now the Rangers apparently have time.
The Rangers just need to get both players to Spring Training and both are after a five-year banishment because of their role in a visa fraud case. Word is they will be there when pitchers and catchers report next week.
That’s one less move the Rangers need to make this winter.
And the winter is almost over.
Sean Payton is a genius because the Saints recovered an onside kick at the right time. The 49ers lost a game earlier this year when they fumbled away an attempted reverse on a punt return. Head coach Mike Singletary was taken to task for that play.
How many baseball managers understand the fine line between genius and insanity. Grady Little seems to stand out. Remember Pedro Martinez in the 2003 ALCS against the Yankees?
Tough job. But Sean Payton is a genius and the Saints are Super Bowl champions.
