08:15 AM ET 12.14 | Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler took the occasion of a Tuesday radio appearance to try to put fans' concerns to rest. On the team as it is currently constructed in light of the Angels signing both Albert Pujols and Wilson: "Our team is so solid. Our pitching staff is as good anyone's in the game and we all believe that. We trust oursleves. We believe in ourselves and we believe in our starting rotation and that we don't need to make a move to overpower the Angels. We're good where we're at." Kinsler joked that hopefully he's in Wilson's head already and that maybe he's "confused" Wilson enough that it could help the second baseman when he faces him.

The AL West should be an interesting division next season. Exciting, at very least.

Is Ron Washington batting leadoff?

I can't stand Kinsler. He looks a lot like Ron Washington in that pic though.

I hope that never happens. But can we really say we are suprised if it did? The shock of Braun's test is not as bee sting-like as times past.

the rangers should sign fielder to a 7 years deal??

did the MLB has ever reverse a call regarding peds on players??

....me hopes kins works in the offseason on hitting line drives to opposite field (like MY) and less effort towards hitting homeruns....he is a popup machine at times....even though he is very talented and good when on a hot streak....

players can't throw their careers just like that, one's they had being gifted they should play natural without any drugs in their blood!!

December 14, 2011  12:31 PM ET

the rangers have a tough lineup, just about every single player has the ability to get on base!!

December 14, 2011  12:34 PM ET

the mariners won't trade hernandez, best move by the mariners could be,,,,, signning fielder but it could be all alone for fielder, because the mariners have no offense what'soever!!

December 14, 2011  12:35 PM ET

the angels still need a third baseman, could the halos trade for prado??

December 14, 2011  12:35 PM ET

the twins still shoping, willingham has signed a deal with the twins!!

December 14, 2011  12:36 PM ET

December 14, 2011  12:37 PM ET

the pirates have pull a trade with the brewers just two days ago, magee will be playing full time with the pirates!!

December 14, 2011  12:38 PM ET

December 14, 2011  12:39 PM ET

the yankees may and may not be shoping for another two high level pitcher~~~!!

December 14, 2011  12:42 PM ET

he's right about the lineup..pitching, not so much. How do they make up for Wilson's 16 wins? What kind of mental state will Feliz be in, and the same for Ogando. Will Holland be more consistent? Who is the closer?

Nathan from Minnesota is the closer. They should be fine.
