Baseball America announced that their 2010 Executive of the Year is Texas Rangers GM Jon Daniels. Baseball America credits Daniels ability to withstand his 1st 4 years of losing records and the trading away Adrian Gonzalez and Chris Young and having little to show for it. To being able to build a Pennant winner while “saddled with the constraints of a team in bankruptcy” as the reason why Daniels is Baseball America’s 2010 Major League Executive of the Year.
The article goes into what it describes as Daniels “strategic teardown” mode back in May of 2007 and more. I can only hope that in 5 years (or less hopefully) Sandy Alderson will be the 2015 Major League Executive of the Year.
It’s a good read that I recommend checking out. – Link
