I don't want to talk about this:
The Mariners’ rotation put up a combined ERA of 5.16 last season, better only than Florida, Tampa Bay and Texas. Management addressed that concern by acquir[ing] Erik Bedard from the Baltimore Orioles . . . .
I can't remember a time when Rangers' fans haven't lamented to each other: "What we really need is pitching." But did we fight for Bedard or Johan Santana even invite some old has-been like Randy Johnson or Roger Clemens? No. We fought for Torii Hunter. A center fielder. And lost.
At least we stole Nolan Ryan from the Astros again.
