Rangers Looking For Pitching

The Rangers have the worst pitching in the league, compiling a 5.27 ERA so far this season. However, their offense has kept them in a lot of games to come out to a 60-57 record. If they were able to land one or two solid pitchers, perhaps CC Sabathia and a number two or three starter, they would definitely be in contention in the AL West. They have the money to spend, they have just avoided doing so while they waited patiently for their minor leaguers to develop. They would definitely need to open the pocket book for Sabathia, but trading for a pitcher like A.J. Burnett, assuming he doesn't opt out, would be a great move for 2009 and beyond.
