Rangers may or may not be close to signing Vlad

Jan 9, 2010, 10:07 AM EDT

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
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.

    Schroedinger’s DH — you cannot be certain what’s happening until he steps into the batter’s box.

    “I’m done with you, Bowden.” Sure, sure – you say that now. But the next time Bowden posts one of those rumors he must be getting from bathroom stalls, you’ll be saying “I wish I knew how to quit you, Bowden.”

    What is up with all these Designated Hitters having tons of pride and not wanting to accept a strictly DH role? Look, you’re old, slow, play awful defense but you can still swing it. Get over yourself. A team is willing to pay you multiple millions to strictly hit in a very hitter-friendly ballpark. Dye and Vlad should consider themselves lucky to even get a sniff from the Rangers especially with all the young bucks on their roster.
