Rangers Agree To Extend Ron Washington

THURSDAY: The Rangers agreed to a two-year extension with Washington, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

WEDNESDAY: Ron Washington will meet with Rangers president Nolan Ryan and GM Jon Daniels tomorrow to work out the terms of a contract extension, reports MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan.  The deal could be finalized as soon as tomorrow and Sullivan guesses the extension will cover two or three seasons.

Washington has a 331-317 record in four years as the Texas manager, and will forever hold a place in Rangers history as the first manager to lead the team to an AL pennant.  Washington originally signed a two-year contract to manage the club in November 2006, with options for 2009 and 2010 that were both picked up.  The next step for Texas may be to explore an extension for Daniels — the GM is under contract only through next season.

Can they include a clause requiring him to read some Bill James writings on bullpen usage?

Crazy to think he was on the verge of getting fire before the season and then having a good season and getting an extension

Neftali Feliz appreciates this move, knowing he won’t be used in too many pressure situations in the playoffs.

Ron Washington is also signed to a lucrative endorsement deal with Pepsi. Campaign ad: Just say no to Coke. :-)

Good for you Ron. I liked you as the third base coach on the A’s and can’t believe you’ve already been in Texas as long as you have. Keep up the good work. now lets see if they can work out an extension with Josh Hamilton. Who knows what he’s worth.

Ron seized up in the series and got away from the basics that got him there. Hopefully, they get another shot under his tenure and he doesn’t repeat rookie mistakes. Now the important part….LOCK DANIELS UP – he’s doing a great job!
