Texas Rangers News: GM Jon Daniels Says Josh Hamilton Trade Was An "Easy Decision"

When questioned about Monday's finalized trade which brings Josh Hamilton back to the Texas Rangers, general manager Jon Daniels told reporters that the deal was an "easy decision."

Daniels added that Hamilton is "a player we feel can be productive and help us win games," per an Associated Press report.

Hamilton, for one, is extremely happy for the chance to move on from the Los Angeles Angels and find a sense of stability back in Arlington.

"Between 2012 and 2015, a lot of my support system was kind of removed or kind of pushed away and other pieces added, not all by my doing," Hamilton said. "I've taken it back to 2012, pre-2012, as far as having my same support group that I want to have and that I get along with and I feel like is the best for me. I've put all those pieces back in place."

He also has a simple message for everyone around the Rangers ballclub.

"I'm back here. I'm back home," Hamilton said. "I'm going to give everything I've got."
