Not so quietly: Adolis García open’s up on Rangers released terrified statement”, SAD NEWS

Coming off a World Series win, one would have thought that the Texas Rangers would be floating on cloud nine this offseason. However, uncertainty about their future TV broadcast revenues turned what should have been a celebration and an influx of cash into a fairly disappointing offseason overall.

Sure, the Rangers did make some moves, but the above revenue concerns have all but removed Texas from the bidding for Jordan Montgomery’s services, as well as kept them away from the deep end of the free agency pool that fans had become accustomed to the team playing in. Instead of trying to push forward and keep strengthening the roster, the Rangers have had to resort to treading water and hoping it is enough.
