i don't know if this has been discussed re: the hamilton trade, but I saw this at the bottom of the Rangers.com writeup on the trade:


In addition to trading for Hamilton, the Rangers also announced on Friday they had signed outfielder Jason Ellison and pitcher Elizardo Ramirez to Minor League contracts with an invitation to Spring Training.

I didn't know he was on the market...

no great loss of either of those two. EZ had his chance with the reds. I'd much rather have Maloney than EZ right now. Guardado was just injured to much as a red for me to have an opinion. We have much younger and better options than everyday eddie but i wish him luck he's a class act.

We have our rotation now. Sure the insurance of EZ would have helped, but barring a lot of injuries, it's not likely he would see much time in the bigs next year anyway.

I too would have liked to have kept EZ at least one more season, but again, maybe the new environment will get him back on track. He just seemed to get hurt at the wrong moments for him. I am drawing a blank here, but what was his injury last season? Did he even see any time at all on the big league level in '07?

EZ was a minor league free agent.

Yeah, I believe EZ was taken off the 40 man at one point to open a spot for someone else, making him available to sign elsewhere.

He was up for a bit, and jerry mismanaged him like the rest of the 'pen. He had a sore shoulder, like last year.

Well, it comes down to whom you want in your bullpen. I take EZ over Mike Stanton. But hey, it's the holidays and I don't want to get started on Stanton.

It does appear the Rangers are going to give JimBo a run for his money, errrrr ummmm, shall I say- a run for former Redlegs!!! LOL!!!

For a moment, I thought they signed him as special consultant.
