Ron Washington to Manage Rangers Next Year
The Rangers won two pennants under Ron Washington, but after a division title-costing late-season fade two years in row and after last nights loss to the Rays, some folks may have suspected that his job was in jeopardy.
Washington is not the worlds best tactical manager, but the Rangers flaws havent been one of tactics of late. At least primarily. The silent bats speak to a lack of power threats beyond Adrian Beltre and last night it seemed half the lineup was limping.
The Rangers season ended sooner than they hoped, but the situation is not broken there. No sense in making any needless fixes.
