When your having a fire sale there is no time to rest when inventory needs to be slashed. Everything with what resembles a salary must go and the Texas Rangers have come knocking again.
If the Rangers are really serious about acquiring the fleet-footed Pierre they had better make sure not to make the same mistake they made in the Beckett deal.
The Marlins aren't interested in what would be a fair trade in the short run. The team doesn't want anyone who has anything close to a salary. They want the farm hand. The one, who, for other clubs would be a year or two or more away from being ready. In other words, no experience desired. Oh, it would also be a plus if no one had any idea how to spell his name.
So, Rangers, if you are interested in Pierre don't try to trade a proven Major League player heads-up. There is no place for him here. The team is looking for prospects plain and simple.
This still makes me sick.
