What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Ron Washington became the winningest manager in Texas Rangers history today as the Texas Rangers beat the Oakland A's 4-0 behind Derek Hollands dominant outing.Wash surpassed Bobby Valentine with his 582nd win as there Rangers skipper.It was fitting that the milestone was surpassed in Oakland where Wash had coached for 11 seasons.
You gotta love Ron Washington
When you say'love him' are you saying literally you want to 'love him'.
Well come on folks. There's room for a couple more of you to sign this card.
I've always liked Wash for being a player's coach. So much so that his in-game decision making that gets maligned by so many is a non-factor in my opinion of him. The Ranger players have always voiced their utmost respect for hm and they respond to his instruction. His style of leadership lends itself to a clubhouse and team atmosphere that allows the players to meld as a team and perform at high levels individually.
How many times have we heard Wash say "Play the game the right way"? It's one thing to say it but another to get your players to respond as consistently as he has. And when you can do that? You win lots of games.
Congrats to Ron.
I wish he'd tell Kinsler to playu the right way. Geez that nap at 2nd was inexcusable.
Wash is doing his best managing this year easily in my opinion. When you combine the loss of talent off last year's team, the injuries to the pitching staff, the year long offensive funk, and now having to deal with Cruz's suspension. If the Rangers make the playoffs he should win MOY in my opinion because there is no manager that has dealt with more than he has this year, and kept his team in contention like he has.
