Hell of a Day to Be a Texas Rangers Fan as Angels Snap up Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson
Meanwhile, Rangers assistant GM Thad Levine counters: "We feel our team is up for the challenge." Or, to quote Jamey Newberg: "Bring it." One Joseph P. Tone breaks it down thusly: "There's a deal that will suck for Rangers fans for four years and then become a back-breaking albatross for the Angels. Like the Giants' Zito deal, only not as pretty."
Meanwhile, this just landed in the in-box: "The Texas Rangers announced today that the club has acquired infielder Greg Miclat from Baltimore as the player to be named later in the December 1 trade involving Taylor Teagarden and Randy Henry." Whew.
Update at 11:58 a.m.: On the other side, Ceej talks to ESPN about how bummed he is the Rangers didn't try harder to keep him.
