Is the Chance to Trade Teixeira to the Detroit Tigers Sailing Away Today?

While Little Jon DanielsHart and bi-POD Tom Hicks are sitting around talking about how they want Teixeira to retire a Ranger even though it seems clear that Tex and Boras can’t wait for free agency, there are signs that the Tigers are wheeling and dealing today, closing the door on an opportunity for a great trade

Apparently, the Tigers have dealt Mike Maroth to the Cardinals (for a player to be named) and Wilfred Ledezma to the Braves for Macay McBride.  This means they’re shoring up their bullpen without looking to Texas.  And with Maroth gone, they’re probably planning to use Zach Miner (who’s rehabbing fast) and Andrew Miller down the stretch. 

So while JD and Hicks were working on JD’s contract extension, one good opportunity looks to have passed them by.

  1. yea im pretty sure the time has passed for Texas. Even Dave dombrowski is saying that texas is asking too much for gagne and teixeira. At this point i dont think tex will be traded this season. Which makes no sense, because i thought Daniels’ contract extension was supposed to push the team to make more moves.

  2. Mr. Rosenthal of doesn’t think that it is likely that Gagne and Otsuka go to the tigers. We play next week let’s whip up on their bullpen and shut them down with ours. I do like his article stating Phil Hughes shouldn’t be untouchable.

    I’m getting a little anxious about this too, are the people who have made so many mistakes going to get this right? But there’s still 5 weeks till the deadline and Teixeira’s on the DL right now. I think it’s a good sign that we’re asking too much right now. I don’t really know if a player to be named later is going to help them, also I believe they aquired Macay because he has options and they can send him down to the minors.

  3. That is a great article by Ken Rosenthal. But if the rangers do look into trading Mark Teixeira to Baltimore the only guys i would ask for in return ARE Nick Markakis and Erik Bedard. Now I mentioned it before, but with the recent yankee hot streak it has gotten them back into the Tex sweepstakes. Is Goerge Steinbrenner willing to part with his future star pitcher for a chance at a world series. If you cant get the yankees to bite on a trade , just not on trading hughes, then i ask for the farm if i’m Texas. I ask for Melky Cabrera, jose tabata, joba chamberlain and ian kennedy. Is that enough though? Any talks should start with phil hughes…end of story.

    I still don’t thinkthe rangers should take Phil Hughes:
