A couple of hot stove highlights from Jon Heyman's latest...
- Heyman gives props to Rangers GM Jon Daniels for his Mark Teixeira haul from 2007: Elvis Andrus, Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and Beau Jones (the Rangers also gave up Ron Mahay). The Braves ended up acquiring Casey Kotchman and Stephen Marek from the Angels for Tex and drafting lefty Brett DeVall as a compensation pick for Mahay. Heyman says Daniels also talked to the Red Sox, Angels, Yankees, Dodgers, and Diamondbacks about Teixeira at the '07 trade deadline.
- Bob Melvin knew for two days he was going to be fired before the D'Backs announced the move publicly. He handled the situation with class. Arizona brass considered John Farrell and Brett Butler before going with A.J. Hinch.
