Beat me to it... keep at it, and thank you for the updates.

Thanks Greg. You got any insight as to why a guy like Willie Eyre is playing in the AFL at almost 30? The rangers have a bunch of young guys I would have thought would get the nod over him.

He turned 30 in July, and was ineffective in both '06 and '07. He was a former Twins draftee that made his ML debut in April of '06, but the Twins released him in December that year. The Rangers tried him out, but he had TJ surgery in '07 and missed all of this season. I can only assume that the Rangers sent him in hopes that he surprises everyone in a last ditch effort to revive his below-par career. He has been a reliever in the past.
