Off Day; If Losing Ways Continue, Who'll Get the Axe, Daniels or Washington?

Who's more responsible for the Ranger's losing ways, Daniels or Washington?

Here are some of Daniels not-so-good trades:

1. Sorriano to Nationals for Wilkerson, Sledge and Galarraga (pitcher) : For some reason Showalter couldn't get Sorriano to move to the outfield.  Traded to Frank Robinson's Nationals all of a sudden Sorriano is playing the outfield after a battle of wills between Sorriano and Robinson. The Rangers later trade Galarraga to Detroit where he's now a starter.  

2. Chris Young and Sledge and Adrian Gonzalez to Padres for Eaton, Otsuka and catcher Billy Killian.

Also keep in mind that the rotation and bullpen were put together by Daniels.

Lastly, has anyone else noticed that since Nolan Ryan became president of  baseball operations we haven't heard much from Daniels? Is that a bad sign for Daniels?

As for Washington, he's managed a team that has led the bigs in errors and had the worst fielding percentage last year, not to mention that the Rangers had the worst ERA last year. Of course, is the worst ERA in the majors the manager's fault or the GM's? Or is it the players' fault on the team?

Needless to say, if the losing continues someone is getting a pink slip. I'd think it'd be Daniels before Washington, but that's just a guess.
