the problem is that other teams are thinking laterally while apparently the Rangers FO isn't. they have targets but instead of pursuing all at the same time they are keying on #1 on their pursuit list and then #2 and then #3.
i think that's what happened with Rendon. he was their #1 target and by the time they knew he was signing with LAA their other possible targets had already signed
Beyond them saying they will be active in free agency and having been in contact with several players, I personally don't think there's enough to label what the FO is thinking.
I also don't get what other teams going after small fish has to do with the Rangers. For quite a while now, the understanding was that the Rangers would be going after big fish.
And i will never understand the hard-on this board has for Rendon. "Lowballing" him was one of the smartest things the FO has ever done.
