According to MLB.com, the Rangers have reached a tentative agreement with Derrick Turnbow on a minor league contract.
Agent Damon Lapa explained that Turnbow opted for the Rangers over the Marlins and Pirates because of his familiarity with pitching coach Mike Maddux. If Turnbow makes the major league team he'll earn $925,000 plus an additional $325,000 in potential incentives.


Good.

Indeed. Rooting for a team that no one wants to play for can occasionally have its moments.
