Is Everything Bigger in Texas?

The Star Telegram is reporting that the Rangers may have submitted the winning bid. They cite sources with knowledge of the process. It's the first time any "major" media outlet has claimed any awareness of the results. If it is true, Hicks has scored a major win for his club to open the offseason, and has put himself in the mix for the division title for years to come. I don't know how Matsuzaka will like Texas, but I suppose you'll have to ask Akinori Otsuka how he fit in in the Lone Star State last year. Pretty well I think......

UPDATE: It's been more than an hour since this story went up on-line. To this point, no Japanese news outlet, and no other US news organization has commented, confirmed, refuted, or mentioned the story from Texas. Maybe the speculation is also WAY bigger in Texas....
