This is the best possible situation that could have come from this manager search. Ive been rooting for Washington since day 1, and am so happy the Rangers made this decision.
Why did the Rangers make this decision? This manager hiring gives the Rangers clubhouse instant chemistry. Every player on the A's absolutly loved Washington, and really respected the guy. Washington is a great guy that listens to the players and a guy the players responded to. Players will want to come and play for Washington.
A guy that preaches defense and pitching will help our pitching staff, and is a old school guy that knows the tools of the trade.
Last but not least, I think Washington is a guy that will not be afraid to play the young guys, he isn't afraid.
I don't know about you guys, but I am so proud to be a Rangers fan right about now.
Vernon Wells fans should also be happy about this.
