Interesting that Tom Hicks, rather than Jon Daniels, seems to be the object of other teams' ire.
That said, I can't say that I have a real issue with Daniels & Co. taking their time on this, and waiting through the weekend to pull the trigger. It isn't as if any deal out there is likely to be pulled off the table in the meantime, and as the deadline gets closer, teams would seem to be more willing to up the ante.
And the situation with the Dodgers would seem to make it even harder to pull the trigger quickly, if, in fact, the Rangers' "Hanley Ramirez" at this deadline, the guy that is their #1 target, is Clayton Kershaw. Will Carroll mentions in his latest Mill update that "the turmoil in the front office is continuing," and Daniels probably wants to see if that situation gets resolved before dealing Teixeira to another team.
My gut tells me that the Atlanta deal is going to go down tomorrow...but we shall see...
