Early Notes From The Winter Meetings
– The Rangers may see if there is any interest in catcher Taylor Teagarden.
– Three teams from Japan are inquiring about Dustin Nippert
– Rangers interest in Kerry Wood is tempered by concerns about keeping him healthy
– The Rangers talked to Carl Pavano’s agent briefly but word is that most of their foucs is on Cliff Lee. One prominent agent said “The Yankees have to sign Cliff Lee. They can’t let him get away”.
– The Marlins are looking for a center fielder with speed. That could be Julio Borbon.
– The Padres are looking for a first baseman now that they traded Adrian Gonzalez, Chris Davis is a player of interest
– Texas isn’t pursuing Brandon Webb as much as others. Rangers say odds against starters coming back from significant injury are much greater than a reliever.
