NASHVILLE — Some of the biggest money spent so far at the winter meetings has been on a $4 roll of Tums, a $5 bottle of water, a $9 pretzel and an $11 beer, not necessarily in that order.
These are the slowest meetings in recent history. Whataburger drive-thru slow.
The Rangers’ agreement Tuesday with right-handed reliever Kirby Yates on a one-year contract rated as one of the biggest deals at the Gaylord Opryland Resort.
The Yates signing makes the Rangers one of the winners so far this week. They weren’t expecting to get any more deals done before they packed up and headed home either Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
Bengie Molina slow.
