If you were the Texas Rangers and had a choice between OF Josh Hamilton and SP Zack Greinke, who would you choose? This is the dilemma the Rangers could have in the coming 2012-2013 offseason.
In an ideal world, Texas would be able to re-sign Hamilton and still sign free-agent ace Greinke. The Rangers do have a payroll of about $120.5 million in 2012, and success in the playoffs would bring in more revenue.
Unfortunately, even the additional revenue would leave enough room for only one star.
So, is it more important to have an elite lineup with Hamilton in it or an elite rotation that includes Greinke?
