The Rangers’ mildly warm stove

I don’t have much to say regarding the Rangers’ off season to-date. The losses of Carlos Lee, Adam Eaton, Mark DeRosa, et al have barely made me take notice. Sure, some of the departed made contributions last season, but contributions to what? Last season was a disaster by any measure.

Similarly, the additions of Catalanotto, Gagne, and Lofton leave me somewhat unimpressed. Are we back to zero now? Certainly seems close.

On one hand, the free agent market has gone INSANE this year. On the other hand, what difference does that make? Either you’re in or you’re out.

Sign Zito and I’ll say you’re in. Otherwise, let’s go ahead and pre-order our 3rd Place ribbons, again, and start counting down to the 2007 football season right now.
