Found October 29, 2011 on MLB Trade Rumors:
The Rangers fell short of their ultimate goal but still had an extremely successful season in 2011. They'll look to improve this winter, then try to become the first AL team to win three straight pennants since the Yankees from 1998-2001. Here's the latest from Texas... C.J. Wilson spoke to Jeff Caplan of ESPN Dallas about his upcoming free agency following last night's loss. He feels the Rangers have treated him with a lot of respect, but the free agency process is foreign to him and he doesn't know what will be out there for him. "I'm definitely interested in coming back," said soon-to-be free agent Mike Gonzalez to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas. "Whatever we can do, I'm willing to do what I need to do." Gonzalez will have his knee scoped next week, but will be ready in time for Spring Training. “We’ve got find ways to get better," said Rangers GM Jon Daniels to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports after last night's game.

World Series postmordem: 10 questions about Rangers for 2012

The World Series has ended and, sigh, the Texas Rangers came in second for the second season in a row.
