The catching situation could be a big one for the Texas Rangers as Mike, Jeff and I talk about Mike Napoli and whether or not the Rangers believe it’s worth it to bring him back. Also, was Geovany Soto really the biggest factor in the Yu Darvish turnaround?

We try not to beat you down with Josh Hamilton talk but after news came out that his asking price was going to be 7-years and $175 million, we couldn’t help but give our take on what the Rangers won’t go that far to bring the All-Star outfielder back. We agree the money ($25M/year) doesn’t scare us, the years do.

All that and much more on this addition of Scooping the Texas Rangers!
