Rangers make a good deal

Anyone who reads this blog knows I'm not the biggest fan of Texas general manager Jon Daniels' moves.

But I like his Wednesday gamble to sign Jason Jennings.

If Jennings is healthy -- and that's a big if given his recent surgery -- his presence will be a boost to the Rangers' rotation. Jennings learned early in his career how to pitch in a hitter-friendly environment as he won 17 games in a season with Colorado.

More importantly, Jennings, a Dallas native and former Baylor University standout, has something to prove after an injury-marred 2007 season with Houston.

An incentive-laden contract was the way to go and Daniels may have made his best move as Texas GM by landing Jennings.
