The Rangers get their man:

Quote:
The Rangers have acquired Matt Garza from the Cubs, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). In a second tweet, Passan adds that Mike Olt is in the package.

You'll be getting to see King Felix pitch for the Mariners against the Red Sox on July 31st, SoupBro. I'm going to an A's game that day; pitching matchup will be R.A. Dickey vs. Bartolo Colon.

MrMister, you probably shouldn't worry too much. Vision issues or no, Olt is a 24-year-old hitting .213/.317/.422 in the Pacific Coast League.

He just might not be all that good.

Or he might be another Chris Davis.

(Seriously, though, Davis always showed signs of being a beast-in-the-making in the minors.)

Old isn't good, and the fact that he has the best LOL name parody helps that fact: LOLT

Welp, Rick Eckstein got the axe. Hitting coaches are usually always the first to go during a disappointing season.

Yeah we talked about finding out what Olt was earlier in the season. If he can't hack AAA PCL, he's probably just bad.

re: MLB: off season/hot stove

From Texas standpoint, the deal is brilliant. Although Chicago...

What's the point of the Cubs getting Olt from Texas if they already have a floodgate at 3B with Bryant, Vitters and Baez?

No Hall of Fame for him, assuming he doesn't suck without the drugs.
