Excerpt: "Ron Washington"

"Focusing just on the baseball aspects, I think this ends up being a very good outcome for the Texas Rangers. They can give Tim Bogar a spin now and spend a lot of time vetting Bogar and other candidates for the job, choosing a new manager well before having to deal with what will be a complicated offseason. Losing Washington will not be the significant loss it is perceived to be, not just because they'll be better off between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., but because Washington's oft-praised clubhouse skills may not have been universal, but rather specific to a certain set of players."
