This is part three of a series where I will examine the free agents and name the top players the Rangers should go after. This week, I will examine the free agent outfielders.
Gary Matthews, Jr.
Jose Cruz, Jr.
Top outfielders that the Rangers should go after:
1. Alfonso Soriano: He can fill our DH roll, play outfield and back up Kinsler at the same time.
2. Trot Nixon: He can play good defense and be a decent batter.
3. Gary Matthews, Jr.: Gary played great last year, he fields great and bats good.
4. Jim Edmonds: He has been a good center fielder for the Cardinals and we could use a veteran with some leadership skills.
5. Frank Catalanotto: He can play every outfield position.
6. David Dellucci: He can play every outfield position.
7. Jay Payton: He is a great fielder and a decent hitter.
8. Dave Roberts: He could give us some more outfield speed.
9. Kenny Lofton: He is a decent one-year guy.
10. Ryan Klesko: He still has some playing abilities in him.
Come back next week for the last part of this series (catchers and relief pitchers. I forgot to do catchers earlier with the rest of the infield).
