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.
