Texas wants answer on Zito soon

Star Telegram

The Rangers have let Barry Zito's agent, Scott Boras, know that they don't plan to wait around all winter for his response. The Rangers want to hear by this weekend whether or not Zito plans to accept their contract offer. Rangers owner Tom Hicks wrote via e-mail: "We've made a very strong offer. If we don't have agreement with his agent by this weekend, we will pursue other alternatives."

Texas shouldn't let Boras dictate the course of the negotiations.
