Buck Off

Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks has canned manager Buck Showalter, according to KTCK-AM (1310). I believe Richie wrote on August 24 that Hicks had hired the wrong man, which means he fired the right one when he gave Buck his walking papers, likely last night during a confab with general manager Jon Daniels. Glory hallelujah. I am sure Richie will have more to say shortly, after he comes down from his told-ya-so high. --Robert Wilonsky
