This thought occurred to me as I watched him approach the mound and give Tanner Scheppers the ol' Derek Holland "talkin' to."
Warsh has done a really decent job as a player manager over the last several seasons. In my opinion, and I think others, he's done a fantastic job getting our young kids to grow up before our eyes. He's a great people person and inspires his players better than most (I am only able to imagine). I think the general consensus is that he is a great players' manager.
Warsh has made some really poor decisions in his career as a manager. They're all well documented and debated enough. From not being capable of competing with N.L. rules to being to devoted to his players to poor decisions with the bullpen or bunters. I think most of us can agree that he leaves something to be desired from a strategic standpoint.
Now, all of this being said, I am curious what the not-on-rangers-facebook-page community thinks about keeping Ron around. I've tried to think about it like this:
Players are expected to grow as they experience the game in their roles. You yourself are expected to improve at your job the more time you spend there. One of the explanations for Mitch Moreland busting out is that he has finally had the chance to play every day and it has helped him figure it out. I wonder if this same thought process could be applied to the Old School Brotha.
Now before you mention that he's had 5+ years to figure it out consider that there are a ton or players and managers who don't figure it out right away. I'm really not the guy to ask if he's been improving on a daily basis so you all might debate that yourselves. I am really asking myself honestly if it'd be a smart idea to hold on to him and hope and pray that he figures it out. He may be Crush Davis or he might be Justin Smoak. What say you?
