Go to any web site selling Texas Rangers gear and there they are: T-shirts and jerseys with the names Napoli, Hamilton and Young on the back.
Soon, they could all be in the bargain bin.
The Rangers are undergoing much more than a wardrobe change this winter. General manager Jon Daniels and team president Nolan Ryan are in the midst of reshaping the team.
Mike Napoli is already gone after taking an offer from the Red Sox via free agency. Josh Hamilton could be gone by the same route. The Mariners have shown interest and the Yankees reportedly are starting to sniff around.
Young is owed 16 million next season and isnt walking away. However, he could be shipped to Philadelphia, according to reports, if he agrees to drop his no-trade rights.
In short, many of the biggest names in a core group that went to back-to-back World Series could be gone by spring training.
It will take some adjustment by the fans. It will involve more than buying new shirts and jerseys with different names...
