Earlier this month the Rangers fired Ron Washington’s bench coach, Jackie Moore, and the 74-year-old baseball lifer fired off some strong parting shots at the front office on the way out of Texas.

Now the Rangers have brought in Tim Bogar as his replacement, providing Washington with a new right-hand man and setting up the 47-year-old Bogar as the logical in-house candidate should Washington’s job status come into question even further next season.

Bogar has frequently been linked to various managerial openings in recent seasons and was the Red Sox’s bench coach in 2012 before managing at Double-A in the Angels’ farm system this year.

    Seemed like he had potential as a future MLB manager, so he was high on my very, very long list of hopeful successors to Sosh. I guess now he’s on the list to replace Wash.

    Maybe get a picture of him not looking like a serial killer.

    Hopefully Wash will listen to his suggestions bringing good management back to life in the Ranger’s dugout!

    Bogar is a good baseball man – in a way that compliments Washington’s clubhouse excellence. He is probably a good strategic compliment.
