Rangers Get Biggest Bang For Their Buck
**ORIGINAL POSTED DATE 9/14/12**
I thought this would be a good time to go ahead and look at the value of those players to date.
At first glance, it is easy to see that Beltre will be able to fulfill his contract with relative ease (barring injury), while only Adrian Gonzalez and Cliff Lee have a slim chance to fulfill theirs.
As much as Ranger fans should be excited about Beltre honoring his contract with his play on the field, they also need to be concerned with signing free agents to long-term contracts. Keep this table in mind when the offseason starts in less than two months, and the Rangers have to think about paying Josh Hamilton and/or Mike Napoli.
The response to long-term contracts should be the same as to drugs, “Just Say No.”
