Texas Rangers Blog has an interview with Rangers GM Jon Daniels, and one of the topics they touch on is Hamilton’s contract status. One of the things I want to touch on is the fact that Jon Daniels looks really, really young. I don’t know if he’s another one of those Theo Epstein-style wunderkinds, if he’s just blessed with a youthful appearance, or if the Dallas Morning News just has a really skillful photographer, but he looks like he might still get carded when he buys a beer.
When asked about working on a long-term contract for Josh Hamilton, Daniels reply is “Usually, those things occur between the first of the year and spring training. Josh is a guy we want here for a long time and we’ll address that at the right time.” I’ll be looking forward to a press release this winter about a potential contract signing with bated breath.
There’s lots of other Rangers related goodies in the interview as well. I’ve become a Rangers junkie by default, in my quest to keep up with Hamilton, and in the hopes they will build a winning, playoff team around him.
