Job Qualifications

Chuck notes the impending trade of Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez to the Yankees, mostly to cut their payroll. In the course of his commentary he notes:

Tom Hicks is quickly cementing a reputation as the dumbest owner in Major League Baseball, and this would finalize it.

Now I assume that Tom Hicks is the owner of the Rangers (I really don't follow baseball much &mdash a natural reaction to living in the same town as the Pirates &mdash but I digress) in which case, I would assume that being dumb is pretty much either a job requirement, or an unavoidable hazard. After all, look at the miserable failure who used to own them!
