The Texas Rangers are a tough team to get behind these days, but Lynn at plus money is a worthwhile spot. While his team isn't worth much, Lynn has still been a more than solid pitcher this season, which includes a .176 allowed batting average and .260 on base percentage through 71.1 innings. I love getting ace quality pitchers at plus money. Give me the Rangers.
