The game is afoot…

The Rangers have fired the opening salvo in contract negotiations with Josh Hamilton.

The reaction?  Probably not what they hoped:  “My agent and I were disappointed with their offer” said Hamilton.  “The negotiations have begun.”

There is no real time crunch for the Rangers here.  Hamilton can’t become a free agent until 2012, and his salary for this season is $550 000.  Currently, he is one of the best deals in baseball, but it is good for the team to engender some good will towards one of their marquee players.
