GM Daniels gets one-year extension despite Rangers' woeful record
ARLINGTON, Texas -- General manager Jon Daniels' immediate future with the Texas Rangers was settled Tuesday with a one-year contract extension.
Now Daniels has more time to figure out how to improve baseball's worst team.
Rangers owner Tom Hicks gave the 29-year-old Daniels an extension through the 2009 season despite a 26-43 start that left Texas with the worst record in the major leagues. While disappointed with the record, Hicks is confident in baseball's youngest GM.
