Rangers General Manager, Jon Daniels, said he didn't care for outfielder Josh Hamilton's choice of words when the free-agent to be after the season said that he "didn't owe the Rangers" a hometown discount.
Come on Daniels and everybody else. Just calm t.f. down over everything people say. People are going out of their way to be offended.
Do you know when we should flip out and react with anger? When the douchebag leader of Iran says he wants to wipe Israel off the map. When something is life and death then we should get serious about someone's comments.
So some baseball player who doesn't show gratitude says something the GM doesn't agree with? So what? Relax.
If Texas pays Hamilton the most money he stays. If he gets more money elsewhere, he goes. It's that simple. Would the tear-jerking story be if Hamilton took less money from the Rangers because they stood by him and took him off the scrap heap and put up with his addiction problems? Sure. But this is reality, not a Disney movie.
Teams have no loyalty to players. When they slip or can't play anymore, they are quick to get rid of them or trade them.
Players have no loyalty other than to money. That is why I crack up when a player holds out, then signs for as much as he can and then says, "It wasn't about the money." By the way, sorry to use the word crack in a story involving Josh Hamilton. Please don't be offended.
