Tracy Ringolsby is the latest national baseball writer to weigh in on the Showalter/Daniels dynamic:
Texas forced out John Hart in manager Buck Showalter's latest power play, then made Jon Daniels, 28, a showcase general manager whom Showalter will control.
Also interesting is Ringolsby's description of the front office situation in San Diego:
The Dodgers plan to interview Hart. Towers' name also had popped up, but he has declined to be interviewed. San Diego chief executive officer Sandy Alderson has entrusted the bulk of player evaluations to Grady Fuson, who worked for Alderson in Oakland.
