Trade talk

The Rangers have made their first big trade today -- and it's not what you would think.

Nope, Mark Teixeira is still a member of the Rangers -- at least for the moment.

The Rangers dealt outfielder Kenny Lofton to Cleveland for catching prospect Max Ramirez.

This is a pretty good deal for the Rangers. Holding on to Lofton wouldn't accomplish anything this season. Catching is a dire need for just about everyone and if Ramirez pans out, this could be a memorable deal.

Teixeira, meanwhile, seems more and more like a future Atlanta Braves player. The Braves have a valuable trade chip in Jarrod Saltalamacchia who came up through the farm system as a catcher but has played some at first in Atlanta.
