Just say no, Rangers

Saw the other day where the Texas Rangers are pursuing free-agent left-hander Barry Zito.

Just a word of caution for Jon Daniels, Tom Hicks, et al: Don't do it.

Yes, Rangers, you need pitching. Yes, Zito is a legitimate All-Star/Cy Young kind of pitcher. But he's also a flyball pitcher and we all know how that story plays out in Ameriquest Field/The Ballpark at Arlington.

The free-agent market has hit crazy levels already and we're still 36 or so hours from the Winter Meetings beginning. The Rangers, after losing so many key components from last year's team, need to make a big-time move. It's just the big-name lefty from Oakland isn't the right move to make.
