Bill Madden with the Hot Seat Scorecard...

Bill Madden of the NY Daily News has a breakdown of managers and g.m.s on the hot seat. And it includes this little nugget on the Rangers' management team:

It's happening all over again for Buck Showalter. Ranger players are said to be in revolt over his obsessive, micromanaging ways, and GM John Hart's inability to acquire or develop quality pitching has also drawn fire. They're probably both too expensive to be replaced now, but the Rangers' regression this season has severely shortened owner Tom Hicks' leash on his management team.

Too expensive to be replaced now? Hmmmm...maybe those lucrative offseason extensions for Buck and Hart weren't such a good idea after all...
