If I were a Texas blogger, I'd spend a day quantifying just how much more a guy would be worth to the Rangers as a groundball pitcher, rather than a flyball pitcher, tossing half his innings in Ameriquest. However, I have neither the time nor the inclination to do so, so I'll just say this - they, like every other team in the league, could use some Felix.

LET'S GO MARINERS!
