Talk about your 'mystery teams'. Heretofore, the Texas Rangers were not seen as suitors of the departed (and cheerful) Cody Ross. However, multiple reports suggest that Ranger manager Ron Washington and GM John Daniels were wining and dining Ross yesterday. So, while the Red Sox continue to feign interest in Ross—ironically as Texas did with Josh Hamilton—the right-fielder is almost certainly outta town. I guess the 'Three-Year $13 Million Rule' doesn't apply to guys who've proven that they can perform in Boston.
