    What makes a good manager? Rangers GM Jon Daniels explains

    Across the way from John Farrell in the Rangers dugout this series is a manager who was voted the American League’s best in his first year at the helm, 2015. Jeff Banister is one of three full-time skippers Rangers president Jon Daniels has had in his time running the Rangers. Much has been made about how Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski views the manager’s job: that in-game management isn’t the most important, but running the clubhouse is. How does another top baseball exec look at it? Daniels explained on the CSNNE Baseball Show podcast. “I think manager’s an enormous role,” Daniels said. “Huge importance, I don’t buy into any of the sort of snarky commentary. … What I think

    Rangers' hitting is fool's gold; Yu Darvish will make fortune in free agency

    Matt Mosley: If you're not asking me to worry about Bob and Ray's money, I'd always lean toward the starting pitcher. With Hamels on the shelf, Yu is the resident ace. I'd love for him to stay with the Rangers. But he'll be able to make a fortune in free agency. It's hard for any player to pass up that opportunity. Some team will pay huge money for him. And I don't think it will be the Rangers. Now if he's more interested in long-term security, the Rangers might be able to work something out. You just don't want to be paying $30 mil per season for an extended amount of time. You already have those $20 mil players like Choo and Fielder. And Elvis is a relative bargain at $15 mil. Question: Do
