Dear Texas Rangers,

DO NOT trade Justin Smoak.

This franchise has already traded Sammy Sosa. Why would we repeat that mistake with the best switch hitter since Mantle?

This team needs hitters more than it needs pitchers.

You don't know how much I enjoyed writing that sentence.

If you must trade, trade pitchers. Keep your top arms off the market and trade any of your second group. Here are the top arms which ought be off the market:

Martin Perez

A guy like Main may or may not ever succeed. However, he is too talented to trade. Keep him to the bitter end. If he doesn't make it, go down with the Michael Main ship. Think big. Trading a Michael Main is thinking small.
