Texas Rangers Leave Winter Meetings With Nothing

19m | Dec 13, 2023

In this insightful episode, we delve into the Texas Rangers' offseason strategy amidst financial uncertainties. Fresh off their euphoric first World Series win, a significant achievement capping 52 years of effort, the Rangers are now facing a challenging offseason ahead of the 2024 season. The episode explores the Rangers' cautious approach in building their roster, contrasting it with the aggressive moves of teams like the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays.

We discuss the Rangers' sole major signing so far - reliever Kirby Yates for one year at $4.5 million - and their hesitancy to make further big moves. Ken Rosenthal's insights on the Athletic suggest the Rangers are considering two paths: possibly retaining Clayton Kershaw or exploring second-tier free-agent starters like Sean Manaea, Frankie Montas, or Michael Wacha. A key factor in their restrained approach is the looming "financial uncertainty," mainly due to the potential loss of the media rights deal with Bally Sports. This episode examines the implications of these financial challenges and how they're shaping the Rangers' strategy for constructing their 2024 roster​
