We’re hearing mixed messages on Vladimir Guerrero. Yesterday Jim Bowden was harping that the Rangers were finalizing a one-year contract with him.
The two sides are known to be talking, so we gave him the benefit of
the doubt at the time, but last night a source told the Fort Worth
Star-Telegram that nothing had changed in negotiations for the veteran slugger.
I’m done with you, Bowden.
In other news, the Rangers are still
“pushing on” free agent outfielder Jermaine Dye. According to Evan
Grant of the Dallas Morning News, team officials met with him in Los Angeles this week.
The Rangers would like him to be their primary designated hitter, but so far,
Dye has been reluctant to accept the role. You know, since he has so
much to offer with the glove.
