The Colbrunn situation 

Greg Colbrunn's wrist problem has flared up again. This is the same problem that cost him most of the last two seasons, according to Todd Wills in the DMN...
The parallels between the Colbrunn situation and the Astacio situation are interesting...both are guys who have missed most of the last two seasons with injuries, who were added to the 40 man roster despite there not appearing to be any other teams interested in giving them a major league deal, who have been awful this spring, who are struggling with injuries again, and yet seem to be guaranteed spots on the 25 man roster.
I don't get it.

Not relevant to Colbrunn, but I heard Norm say this morning that the reason Laird is going to AAA (probably) to start the season is that the Rangers are mad at him for not playing winter ball. Laird didn't play because he wanted his injured thumb to heal up.
While Laird is certainly not the solution to the catchimg situation, his plight is representative of the poor decisions the Rangers' management has made/is making.
Horrible management decision to not give Laird the opportunity. His thumb obviously wasn't healed at the end of last season. Its fine, Barajas will show his true colors getting the starting nod.
