The Rangers catching situation does a 180

Sep 18, 2009, 10:22 AM EDT

Almost exactly one year ago, MLB Trade Rumors wrote this:

The Rangers have the game’s best catching surplus, with Laird, Teagarden, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Max Ramirez.

Today, MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan says that the Rangers are seriously thinking about signing Pudge to an extension.  And it makes sense, too.

People were throwing around names like Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello in trade rumors involving the Rangers’ catching surplus last year. What a difference a year makes.
