LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There's a noticeable lack of excitement and activity in the lobby of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. Heck, I was pumped when the Chick-fil-A cow showed up yesterday. And we're waiting for Mickey to swing by too. It just isn't the same as its been the past few years, in large part because of how massive last week was in the baseball world.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Among those congratulating Texas Rangers radio voice Eric Nadel on the highest award the sport can offer for a broadcaster, is former president George W. Bush and Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan. Nadel will be honored on Saturday, July 26, 2014 as part of the Hall of Fame weekend. "I congratulate my friend Eric Nadel on winning the 2014 Ford C. Frick Award.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – New Texas Rangers catcher J.P Arencibia will get a fresh start after a couple of historically-ugly seasons offensive seasons. It certainly can’t hurt. “Change is good,” Arencibia said Tuesday after he passed a physical and …
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Some Texas Rangers fans may feel like outfielder Nelson Cruz owes the franchise after he missed 50 games last season for a club that sorely missed his offensive production. Cruz returned for Game 163, but didn't have a hit as the Rangers' season ended earlier than they expected. But general manager Jon Daniels does not share that opinion. "He had a decision to make," Daniels said late Tuesday afternoon. "I think one of the byproducts of that decision was that it impacted the club.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Catcher J.P. Arencibia and the Texas Rangers have finalized a $1.8 million, one-year contract. Arencibia hit .194 with 21 homers, 18 doubles and 55 RBIs in a career-high 138 games this year for Toronto. The …
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- J.P. Arencibia knows that his power is well ahead of his average. He's hit 62 homers in his three full seasons in the big leagues, yet has a .214 average and a .260 on-base percentage in that span. The Rangers want to see that power from Arencibia, who was officially signed on Tuesday at the Winter Meetings. But they hope that along with it comes a steady climb of his batting average and OBP. Perhaps hitter-friendly Rangers Ballpark in Arlington will help the right-handed hitter.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It appears the price for Shin-Soo Choo, at least right now, is in the Jacoby Ellsbury range (in terms of years and salary) and that's not a price the Rangers want to pay. Ellsbury signed a seven-year, $153 million deal with the New York Yankees this offseason.
