Daniels getting a contract extension

The concerns I had that Nolan Ryan coming in might mean wholesale front office changes? They may be unfounded...

T.R. Sullivan reports that Jon Daniels is getting a contract extension...

This, I think, makes sense, given that the team is in long-term rebuilding mode, and is making moves with an eye towards competing in 2010 or doesn't make a ton of sense to ask your g.m. to make moves with an eye towards the future when he's working on a short-term deal.

Please spare us the "Hicks just likes Daniels because he's keeping the budget low" comments in response to this post. That schtick has gotten old, and I'm tired of reading it.
