It'll be shown on ESPNews. This could be anything from a deal announcement to the announcement of the death of the deal (probably the later or somewhere in between)

I'm not a big fan of this deal because a)maggs is a better hitter than nomar b)it does nothing to address our problems on the field (starter, lead off hitter) c)does nothing to help us long term and d)the effect on budget is marginal. I am even a less fan if the rumors are true that we are throwing in both wright and kotts to get williamson and his 6.2 ERA he enjoyed facing AL hitters.

I went to the Rangers official website, and listened to appx 5:20 of their GM explaining that "The Deal" is dead, for now, they'd love to welcome A-Rod back to play SS for them in 2004, any trades they do make will be to improve the Rangers, blah blah blah.

That's 5:20 of my life I'll never get back.
