The Rangers avoided arbitration with outfielder David Murphy, agreeing to a one-year, $5.775 million contract. This was Murphy’s last go-around in arbitration. In 2012 he hit .304/.380/.479 with 15 homers.

Good for him, but won’t somebody think of the poor arbitrators who won’t be able to charge for the hearing, not to mention travel time, lunch and things like that? This is why our economy is in the tank, people.

    Basically exactly halfway between the team offer and the player offer. The Rangers streak of no arbitration hearings continues!

    Don’t know how he generates any drive on the ball with that swing and all his weight up front like that.
