With the trades and the prospects Kenny seems to have no problem trading, who do you guys think will be the best prospect left unprotected to the Rangers? I'm going with Borchard, Rangers might even pass up on him because of his salary anyways.

The rangers need pitching,not a struggling switch hitting outfielder.

I guess I could see Rauch left ''unprotected'', but I doubt that he would be thrown into the "pool of 8 mid-level prospects" that is being reported anyway...

that's what I mean, he probably won't be taken even if he's not one of the three untouchables, Cotts, Honel, and Reed should be the untouchables. A guy I hope passes under the Rangers' radar is Rudy Yan, the kid can flat out fly.

Yan can flat out not field a lick either,that guy is a project.

I would not be adverse to Cotts being gone,his control problems are not reflected by his numbers,but he has also been injured two years in a row.

Cotts still seems to be a good prospect though, BTW, how's Diaz doing, haven't heard much about him this year.

Although I'm certainly not yet convinced that Cotts is the real deal, I would not want to see him go at this time. First of all, based upon what the Rangers were willing to trade Juan Gon for, I wouldn't think the Sox would have to give up a prospect of Cotts' caliber (even with the control issues) in the Everett deal.

The sox gave them a pool of 8 to choose from.

They can't pick and grab any prospect they see in the sox
farm.

Thank you!

I thought I was going crazy thinking I was the only one to see this.

I know, I wasn't really specific but that's what I meant.

Felix Diaz is 3-5 in 9 starts with a 3.71 ERA.

My guess is the pitchers are Cotts and Ginter. If not Cotts, Malone, Ginter, <position player>

If it was it would be done by now. The Rangers would have jumped REAL quick at that.

That is a hell of alot to pay for Everett.

I wouldn't pay that for Gonzalez.
