Nolan Ryan and his financial backers have successfully bought out the Texas Rangers in last nights bankruptcy auction. They have successfully outbid Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. With one of baseballs strongest farm systems and a shift in financial power I'm guessing the AL West may experience a shift in the balance of power. At least until the A's relocate or build a new stadium. Billy Beane with a $100 mil. to spend is an interesting thought.

I'm not here to judge. I'm just pointing out all of the mistakes you're making.

Adopt-a-Players:
Forrest Snow - Started the year injured, then split the year between AA and AAA. At 27, his career may be winding down.
2016 AA/AAA: 3-4, 2.83 ERA, 61 K, 15 BB, 1.074 WHIP, 54 IP

Career:  33-47,  4.08 ERA, 628 K,  241 BB, 1.257 WHIP,  682 IP

Gone But Not Forgotten (former adopt-a-players):

Alex Jackson - Traded to Atlanta after underwhelming in three years of pro ball.
Eric Thames - Battled injury and had a down year in Korea, only hitting .317/.425/.676/1.101 over 121 games.
Matt Mangini - Out of baseball. Now sells cigars and offers baseball training/evaluation services.
Mike Morse - Released by the Pirates in April. Looks like the end of a 12-year career for the former M's prospect.
Jamal Strong - Let go after 2005. Played in the Yankees, Cubs and Braves systems. Now a national scout for the Cards.
