Rangers GM Jon Daniels told reporters soon after his club’s loss in the World Series that locking up manager Ron Washington to a multi-year contract was his first offseason priority.  He wasn’t lying.

The two sides will sit down on Thursday and work out the final details of a contract extension, according to MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan, and could make an official announcement by the end of the day.

Washington was criticized for making a couple of odd moves during the World Series, but he’s highly respected by the core of the Rangers’ clubhouse and the same can be said for his relationship with the Rangers’ front office.  “Wash,” as Daniels calls him, has a 331-317 record in four years with Texas.

With a solid young lineup and pitching staff, a billion-dollar television deal, and a fruitful farm system, Washington and the Rangers should make a successful pair for many years to come.

    With all of those assets, would the Rangers and just any manager make a successful pairing for years to come? Must be nice to have a job where the directive is “please, just don’t fuck this up.”
