Daniels bristles at notion of guile involving Calhoun

For those wanting to get under Jon Daniels’ skin, here’s a tip:

Accuse him of trying to manipulate a player’s service clock.

Thursday marks the day the Texas Rangers could recall outfielder Willie Calhoun without losing a year of contractual control on the centerpiece of the Yu Darvish trade. That, however, is not the reason the Rangers have kept Calhoun at Triple A Round Rock.

“He’s still working on his defense,” Daniels said.

Aha. Hahahahaha, and after we come up for breath, hahahahaha.  Meanwhile, a slew of injuries has led to lots of other guys spinning through the revolving door of the Rangers’ big-league clubhouse, while their top prospect hones his glove skills in AAA.  One expects that Calhoun’s defensive apprenticeship will be complete in another few days :)
