Rangers Reaction To Angels Signing C.J. Wilson

The Texas Rangers have made it to back-to-back World Series with left-hander C.J. Wilson playing a large role in both 2010 and 2011. Now C.J. is on a division rival, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and the Rangers have to live with that.

Texas GM Jon Daniels spoke a bit about losing Wilson, but was more focused on what his team has and is going to do than what concern himself with other teams:

"They got two very good players," Daniels said. "I don't see this as a punch, counter-punch thing. Our goal is to be as good as we can be within the parameters we have to work with. We've been there twice and have to find a way to win it. To do so, you have to get back there first. So we have to find a way to make the playoffs. That's our focus. We feel good about our club and where we're at, but clearly the division got a little tougher."    

One thing is for sure, the Rangers will have a much more difficult task winning the AL West with C.J. and Albert suiting up against them in Anaheim.
