Jon Daniels Five Biggest Mistakes Since 2010

daniels-jon-110304I know a whole lot of people that think it is time for Jon Daniels to go, and I also know a lot of people that think he is brilliant as the Texas Rangers GM. I fall somewhere in between running him out of town on a rail and giving him the keys to the city. In his tenure as the general manager with the Texas Rangers, the franchise has been to two World Series and have acquired such players as Adrian Beltre and Yu Darvish. Of course they have also let players like Nelson Cruz, Koji Uehara, Mike Napoli, Josh Hamilton and other go and watched them perform at a very high level elsewhere. I thought I would take a look at what are the five worse moves by Jon Daniels from 2010 to 2014, and then what are the five best moves he has made in that same period of time. Hope you enjoy.

    I’ll give you Dempster, Garza, and Cantu but Nap and Cruz weren’t mistakes! Nap had a bad hip and if he would have asked JD for the same deal the sox got him for he would still be a ranger. Cruz screwed up! should have taken JD’s money but his agent screwed him into thinking he would get more somewhere else.

      Both valid points Joe. I almost left Cruz off of the list!
