Following two consecutive trips to the World Series in 2010 and 2011, the Texas Rangers' season ended in disappointment as they lost to the Orioles in the AL Wild Card Game. Texas still has a strong team and will be looking to return to the World Series for the third time in four years.
If the Rangers decide to pass on Josh Hamilton, they could use some of that money to go after a front-line starter. The Rangers are seriously considering Zack Greinke so that they could build one of the top rotations in the game, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com.
Should the Rangers re-sign Hamilton, they will almost certainly be out of the Greinke sweepstakes. However, if they do sign both players, they will be in a great position to start a dynasty over the next five years.
