RANGERS REPORTED MANAGER RON WASHINGTON SIGNED A TWO YEAR EXTENSION UNTIL 2014 SEASON
Thu, 02 Feb 2012 12:38 PM EST

The Texas Rangers and Manager Ron Washington concluded to a two year extension, putting the skipper under contract through 2014. Odds

Washington, who turns 60 year old in April, was heading into the final season of his agreement, which was arranged just after the Rangers went to the 1st of their back-to-back World Series trips in 2010. Scores

“I knew that thru time situations would fall into place,” Washington said after getting another two year contract addition. “And things have certainly performed that.”

Washington has helped the Rangers to sequential American League pennants and will again manage the AL All-Star team when the game is played in Kansas City in 2012. Under Washington’s on-field direction, the Rangers not only going to their 1st World Series in organization record, but won their 1st playoff series, beating the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS in 2010.

“When Washington joined us, he came in right as we were beginning a rebuilding plan,” CEO Jon Daniels asserted. “It was something he welcomed whole-heartedly. Some people might not have wanted to sign up for a long-term program, but he dove right in.

“He’s a teacher and an incentive and he’s been a key person the whole way through. He talks to what we’re all about. He is just the right person to run our club.”

Washington’s original agreement was a 2 year cope with club options for 2009 and 2010 that were both exercised.

Daniels employed Washington before the 2007 season, and the Rangers have raised their win total in each of Washington’s 5 seasons. Texas was 4th in the American League West in his first season and 4 games under .500 in 2008. But the club was twelve games over .500 in 2009 and was starting to put the pieces together after finishing 2nd in the AL West. The Rangers won ninety games in 2010 and a club-record 96 in 2011.

“I feel what causes enhancement is handling the incontrovertible reality that you do not know all things. I mostly try to tell that to my players,” Washington claimed. “I’m open-minded. I’m happy to understand and willing to say I’m mistaken. That is the way that I was brought up.

“I’ve acquired a lot of experience in this game from plenty of people and I try to use those experiences to improve. I’m no distinct than a player. That’s what we expect from the team and I expect it from myself.”

Washington has 427 regular-season wins and has managed in 810 games, 3rd-most in club record behind Johnny Oates (506 wins in 983 games) and Bobby Valentine (581 wins in 1,186 games).

He has placed in the AL manager of the year voting for 3 successive seasons (tied for fourth in 2009, second in 2010, 3rd in 2011) and today has the 6th-longest tenure of any manager in the big leagues.

Washington joined the Rangers later spending 11 seasons as a coach with the Oakland A’s. He spent 10 of those seasons as the 3rd-base coach as the A’s made 5 trips to the playoffs, including an ALCS debut in 2006.

Washington played in 564 career big league games and hit .261 with 20 homers and 146 RBIs in all or part of 10 seasons in the majors (with the Dodgers, Twins, Orioles, Indians and Astros). He played generally at shortstop, though passed some time at 1st base, third base and even 4 games in the outfield.
