Emptying the notebook: No progress on lefties’ contracts since Rangers dismissed Daniels

When the trade deadline passed and Martin Perez and Matt Moore were still on the Rangers roster, former president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said that no offer matched the value the Rangers held for the left-handers and that there was interest in keeping them around.
Daniels had already been talking to Perez about a contract extension, with communication picking up between the All-Star break and the Aug. 2 trade deadline.
Daniels was also working on a Moore extension.
Wash as a manager is a great third base coach. He is really bad at managing a game. He cost us a World Series when he changed his mind about putting Endy Chavez in for Cruz in Game 6. He blew it in that series by insisting on going with Harrison in Game 7 when Holland could have pitched right after he pitched the biggest game in the history of the club. Wash may be a great guy and a great coach, but there has been no greater example of the Peter Principle at work, than when he was hired as manager the first time.
I always heard the theory that Wash’s players played hard for him, but every time I asked a media member which player wouldn’t play just as hard for another manager, they would never answer me. Those teams won in spite of Wash, not because of him.
Just say no!
The 2011 World Series. Never Forget!!!
Ahh…there bur for Endy Chavez goes a championship. Agree with the above. Hard pass on Wash.
