The Texas Rangers are likely to end up with one of free
agent slugger Josh Hamilton or Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton,
and most expect them to “overpay” for whichever acquisition they end up with,
reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
A rival executive, assessing the Texas Rangers on Monday, said, “They’re going to overpay Hamilton or they’re going to overpay ‘KT.’”
That’s Hamilton as in free-agent outfielder Josh Hamilton. And that’s “KT” as in Arizona general manager Kevin Towers, who is dangling right fielder Justin Upton, a hitter whom the Rangers covet maybe even more than Hamilton.
