Feel terrible for the kid. Most of us never get handed a winning lottery ticket in life. To be handed one . . . and then to see it taken away . . . that's tough.
For the Rangers, could be a nice value play - a small bonus plus rehab costs for a potential TOR arm.
Still, who'd have thought that the "cheap" move was taking Scheppers, not skipping him?
