Team president Nolan Ryan said Tuesday, five days short of the end of the season, that he expects manager Ron Washington to return to the Texas Rangers in 2009.
"I have no intentions of making a change at this point in time," Ryan said. "He’s under contract for next year. I think that speaks for itself."
"I think the players like him," Ryan said. "I think he’s gotten them to respond to them. I think that’s important. I really believe his intent is trying to get them to improve and address our shortcomings."
General manager Jon Daniels will also be back, Ryan indicated, as the Rangers stick to the plan to develop their own players and build a winner from within.

I really hope they get Wash some more/better help, especially regarding the handling of pitching. I am very glad JD is sticking around.
