Ron Washington press conference

Shortly after the World Series ended Rangers general manager Jon Daniels announced that signing manager Ron Washington to a new contract was the team’s first offseason priority and sure enough the two sides agreed to a deal today.

Washington gets a two-year contract after leading the Rangers to their first playoff appearance since 1999 and first World Series in franchise history.

He has a 331-317 overall record since taking over for Buck Showalter in 2007, improving the team’s win total in each of the past three years.

Washington drew criticism for his in-game tactics at various points in the playoffs, but Rangers players have constantly praised his enthusiastic demeanor and loose clubhouse. No word yet on if ‘Lil Wash also gets a contract extension.
