Yay!!! No more daily updates about who the next Rangers manager is going to be!!!
There's some Ron Washington stuff in posts last night, and Jan Hubbard has a short piece in the S-T about it. It includes this potentially ominous line, though:
If he takes the job, Washington will take over for Buck Showalter, who was fired in early October.
IF? Ugh...I don't want to even think about what a fiasco this would be if it turns out Washington hasn't accepted the job, and goes back to Oakland...
The Bergen Record mentions the Rangers in the Matsuzaka hunt:
According to a report from Japan, the Texas Rangers could emerge as the high bidder, though the Yankees are said to be formulating a competitive bid.
The New York Daily News again mentions the Rangers as a team that has expressed interest to the Yanks in Gary Sheffield.
And in the Detroit News this morning, baseball writer Lynn Hennings says he likes the Tigers chances of doing a Bonderman for Teixeira deal.
Ugh. No Teixeira trades.
