FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: RANGERS TALKING WITH MICHAEL BOURN

Trying to salvage their offseason, the Texas Rangers are now in talks with free agent outfielder Michael Bourn after seeing Josh Hamilton sign with the Los Angeles Angels.  Earlier in the day, the Rangers also signed free agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski to a one-year deal for undisclosed terms.

Analysis:  Bourn has been the biggest loser along with Rafael Soriano so far in free agency, seeing all the other big names get signed while they sit around.  The Rangers would be a logical spot to land since Hamilton is now elsewhere.  As far as Pierzynski, we all know the 27 home runs he hit last season have to be taken with a grain of salt.  For a guy who struggled to hit double-digits in that category the last five seasons, the explosion coinciding with his free agency raised many eyebrows.  However in Texas he will at least remain in a good hitter's park and should hit double-digit home runs.
