To piggy back on the rumor below from Robbie, the Rangers are also in talks with the Red Sox yet again about 3B/1B/Old Man Mike Lowell according to T.R. Sullivan.
You can read discussion of the rumor that will not die over at Lone Star Ball.
Personally, this feels like an Adam Eaton or Sidney Ponson sort of deal. The Rangers won’t rest until Lowell is theirs. I feel I can safely assume that Mike Lowell’s corpse could hit more successfully than Jorge Cantu at this point, so I’m not necessarily against this move if the Rangers happen to pull the trigger. With a month in the season left to go, it will likely be inconsequential regardless.
