The Rangers are trying to trade for Esteban Loaiza. According to the New York Times, "...one official from an American League team described the Rangers as desperate to add a starter."

Desperate to add Loaiza? Loaiza, whose ERAs in June, July, and August have been 5.35, 6.89, and 6.75, respectively?

Loaiza is scheduled to pitch against Aaron Sele tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully, the Angels will give the Yankees reason to consider the Rangers' offer. The Angels have hit Loaiza at a .337/.361/.547 pace; it'd be nice to see him a few more times this year in September.
