Former Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler has burnt some bridges and ruffled some feathers with comments made in an article for ESPN Magazine. He ripped the organization saying he hopes the go 0-162 and called general manager Jon Daniels a sleaze ball. Kinsler went on to say that Nolan Ryan was pushed out of Texas and that getting rid of Michael Young left a leadership void in the club house.
Rangers fans have taken exception to his comments, and former Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton knows what it is like to find yourself cast as a villain amongst the fans that used to support you.
“At least I won’t be the only villain in Texas now,” Hamilton said, according to an Orange County Register report.

Not any fun being in the Texas doghouse, is it @IKinsler3?
