ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Rangers and free agency. Not exactly a sexy combination in recent years.
But that all changed within the span of two days as the MLB team set social media on fire with a slew of reported signings - and the money attached to them.
Monday's latest report from ESPN's Jeff Passan has the Rangers and star free agent shortstop Corey Seager agreeing to a 10-year, $325 million deal.
This came after the Rangers reportedly reached agreements with second-baseman Marcus Semien, outfielder Kole Calhoun and pitcher Jon Gray.
The total, so far? A reported $561 million.
Seems the team had cash burning holes in its pockets heading into this offseason - and it took only four signings for fans to realize just how much the Rangers were willing to spend those funds.
As the saying goes: This team is really putting its money where its mouth is.
In turn, Twitter has been set ablaze by the Rangers signings, as many fans took to the social medium to express excitement - and surprise - at the much-sought-after free agency news.
And it wasn't just the team that tweeted a meme. The comments kept coming from there.
There were no "ratios" under the Rangers tweet; following a 100-loss 2021 season, the signing news has seemingly given area baseball fans something to be excited about - finally.
If piquing team interest was the team's goal this offseason, well, it seems the Rangers may just be succeeding.
