Rangers are grudging givers

With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, it's easy to see who baseball's biggest offseason turkeys have been -- the Texas Rangers.

Well, turkeys or very, very, very generous givers. With the loss of outfielder Carlos Lee to Houston, the Rangers are happily supplying other teams with whatever they need.

Consider in the last two weeks the Rangers have lost their most versatile player (Mark DeRosa), their leadoff hitter (Gary Matthews Jr.) and a guy who hit .322 in 59 games with Texas (Lee).

In their places are who knows what. What we do know is 29-year-old general manager Jon Daniels better get going or the Rangers are going to be run right out of the American League West before the season starts.
