Rangers Decline Vlad's Option - Papi Effect?

2

Does the Rangers decision to decline the $9 million one year option on Vlad signal the market for DH's like Ortiz? Vlad's numbers were about the same as Papi's, and the Red Sox hold a $12 million option on Ortiz. I still like Ortiz in the DH slot for another year or two, and the Sox can quickly put the issue behind them by picking up the option today while trying to negotiate a two-three year deal at less annual cost. Besides, Ortiz has been very reliable and Vlad is a walking DL.
