Josh Hamilton is leaving the Rangers to sign a five-year, $125 million deal with the Angels and it's interesting to hear how Texas got the news.

First of all, Hamilton's agent called Rangers general manager Jon Daniels during this afternoon's media luncheon to tell him the former MVP was going to their AL West rivals.

According to Daniels the Rangers were not given an opportunity to match the offer and Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram characterizes the GM as "not pleased with how negotiations ended."
