A low cost move that should be ok….we’ll see. Meanwhile what happens to Perez and Feliz.

Fantastic move, even if Colby never pitches again. Sends a message to present and prospective players that they can expect a sqare deal with the Rangers.

Great move for both Colby and the Ranger to have his heart and leadership in the rotation.

O”h by the way, where are all of the CJ Wilson fans who thought that we were making a huge mistake by not money whipping this Bum last winter ?
Not trying to say I told u so, but I TOLD U SO. LOL

God it feels good to see him suck in big game situations

More class shown by the Rangers’ organization. Bravo!
