Jon Daniels Agrees To Four-Year Contract Extension With Rangers

Good news for Rangers fans. General manager Jon Daniels has agreed to a four-year contract extension to remain GM of the Rangers through the 2015 season.

Daniels, at least in the mainstream media, has seemingly flown under the radar with Nolan Ryan receiving a lot of the credit for Texas' success in 2010. Daniels has served as general manager since October 4, 2005, succeeding John Hart.

It had been rumored over the past offseason that Daniels, a New York native and Cornell University graduate, would be interested in the New York Mets general manager position. Nothing came to fruition, though, as the Mets settled on Saldy Anderson as their next general manager and Daniels remained with the Rangers.

↵

Now, it looks as though Daniels will remain with the Rangers at least through 2015, giving him a full decade of work in Texas as general manager. The truly crazy and remarkable thing about this is that Daniels at the end of this contract extension will still only be 38 years old.
