The Hamiltons and the Morenos - Victor Decolongon
Sunday morning Rangers news and links
The official unveiling of Josh Hamilton, Anaheim Angel, occurred yesterday, and both Josh and his wife, Katie, spoke to the media, expressing, among other things, their unhappiness with the Rangers not showing a sufficient desire to keep them in Texas.
T.R. Sullivan has a story on the press conference, with quotes.
Richard Durrett has a blog post that focuses on Katie Hamilton's remarks.
Jeff Wilson has a story on Hamilton's press conference, as well, and it includes a little more snarkiness than we've come to expect from Mr. Wilson.
Randy Galloway has a column about how Jerry Jones now has a chance to dominate the D/FW sports scene again, and uses the opportunity to trash, at some length, the Rangers. The article includes, in describing the Rangers front office and offseason, the descriptions "crash and burn," "brutal," "foolish," "clueless," and "arrogant" are used. Galloway also says the Rangers "look like fools," suggests the problems this offseason were caused by "some front office egos" getting in the way, and suggests that, right now, Jon Daniels as a g.m. might as well be Jerry Jones, which is about the most insulting thing I can think of to say about a general manager.
Gerry Fraley has a column saying that, with Josh Hamilton, Mike Napoli and Michael Young gone, the Rangers are going to have to rely on their young players to fill in.
Durrett writes that the Rangers' 2013 bullpen will look much different that the Rangers' 2012 bullpen.
