DateQuestionAnswer
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Eric Hurley and Matt Harrison return to the Rangers next year, if so, Do they go into spring training with ALL of Millwood, Feldman, Hunter, Hurley, Harrison, Holland, McCarthy, and Feliz in the rotation?
(Ira from North Texas)
Both should return, but no, they won't go with an eight man rotation. They'll pick the best five, period. (Will Carroll)
