An idle thought on Rangers finances

Seeing the Heyman note below about the Rangers giving up more in prospects than they would normally so that a team they trade with will pick up all of the salary of a player they might trade for, and the news that John Lombardo has been let go (among the various layoffs the Rangers have implemented), leads me to wonder...

Is John Hart being laid off as well?  Or are pennies being pinched and people who contribute to the organization's success being chopped so that Hart can continue to get $500,000 per year as a "consultant"?

Also, kudos to Tom Hicks for using the team's "financial flexibility" after the 2004 season to extend both Hart and Showlater...Showalter was extended through 2009 that offseason, and is getting somewhere close to $2 million in 2009 from the Rangers.
