3 simple managerial attitudes the Texas Rangers need to make

The Texas Rangers made a statement this week with the firing of manager Chris Woodward and then-president of baseball operations Jon Daniels – that they are all ready for the future.

jon daniels, Texas Rangers president of baseball operations, he said fired Chris Woodward with a view to the future, built on young talent and a winning culture. Rangers managing partner and majority owner Ray Davis shocked the baseball world Wednesday by immediately firing Daniels.

Davis told the media that while Daniels has produced some great teams, they haven’t had a winning record since 2016.

After investing heavily in talent, Davis let it be known that Rangers are fed up with the status quo. You are now ready to win. Davis has promoted Chris Young to chief of baseball operations.

In light of these recent developments, Young is tasked with putting this team on the right track to win. One of his first significant steps will be the appointment of a new manager.

Prior to his departure, Daniels appointed Tony Beasley as their third base coach and interim manager. Beasley has been with Rangers since 2014 and is the longest-serving coach. It will be interesting to see if Young chooses a manager familiar with the organization. Young could easily remove the tentative tag from Beasley’s new status.

With Woodward and Daniels still out for a few weeks into the season, Rangers are serious about their efforts to change course for this team. Beasley can be seen as a course companion.

That would also suggest that Ron Washington is likely to do it Not Return to the Rangers. Washington is a third base coach for the Atlanta Braves, who was captain of Rangers from 2006 to 2014 when he resigned for personal reasons. He had a 664-611 record as a manager, won two AL pennants, and eventually lost to the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals in the 2010 and 2011 World Series. He scored his first World Series win as a third base coach with the Braves in 2022.

While he would undoubtedly provide a spark, Young and Davis would likely see Washington as a step back from what they wanted to do with Rangers. Washington is unlikely to return to Arlington.

Let’s think about who could become serious candidates to take on the Rangers and their talented young team.
