Ron Washington getting a contract extension after his great season at the helm of the Rangers is about as surprising as some tabloid columnist framing the Giants World Series victory in terms of Barry Bonds. Yeah, that matters. Anyway, here’s Jon Daniels on offseason priorities:
“First things first, we’ll address our own free agents as most clubs will, first priority being Wash. I don’t think that’ll be an issue whatsoever. I would imagine once it’s all said and done, we will sit down and resolve that pretty quickly.”
Yes, I’m sure everyone would like to be talking about this following a World Series victory rather than a defeat, but given how crazy this year started for Washington and the Rangers, this is practically fairytale ending territory.
