Deadspin tackles the best of the fake Stanton rumors on the internets, the best clearly are the Red Sox and Yankees fans who think they can get fernandez included as well.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Oh yeah Rangers signed Lance Berkman. I'll love this if he can play semi-regularly, ie doesn't spend all season on the DL. Switch hitter at cleanup, or just hit him vs. RHP if need be. The guy can get on base; he has a career ~.400 OBP (15%+ walk rate). While his power isn't what it used to be, Arlington could offset that.

Kinsler
Andrus
Beltre
Berkman

Not terrible. Add JUp to that, that has some nice potential. Pipe dream lineup...

Kinsler
Andrus
Beltre/Berkman (depends on if you want to got RRLR or not)
Berkman/Beltre
Upton
Cruz

With Berkman though it does looks like Profar starts in AAA and Olt definitely does. Olt probably needs some time in AAA really. Olt + other stuff could also be dealt for Upton, but I don't expect this to happen.

Berkman always talked shit about the AL and now he ends up in it.

Old man has to DH. It's the nature of the beast. Plus 10 million probably made him not care that he's kinda a hypocrite.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

He probably wants to be close to the Astros. DAT NOSTALGIC. In all seriousness, that is a pretty nice line up for Rangers.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Ok, GM Daniels confirmed Kinsler will indeed be at 2B and Moreland will be at 1B. Profar will undoubtedly start the season in AAA then. No need to rush him anyway, he's like 19 or 20. Fuck it let's get Bourn and Upton.

If they did get Bourn, Kinsler could hit lower in the order and I like his speed and power there.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Plz get Upton so the line up becomes a little less potent. Yes, plz.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

What about Ricky Romero (aka Brett Lawrie)? How many rallies will he kill this season? HOW MANY JM??!?!?!

2012 Upton would suck to have. 2011 Upton would be awesome to have.
