ARLINGTON — Chris Woodward, hired after the 2018 season and then thrust into the middle of an organizational rebuild, was fired Monday afternoon as Rangers manager amid the club’s sixth consecutive losing season.

Third-base coach Tony Beasley was named interim manager with the Rangers at 51-63 and in third place in the top-heavy American League West, 23 games behind division-leading Houston.

    I don’t see this team contending next year. The young pitchers that they needed to take a step forward haven’t done so. Another losing season I’m afraid.

      I think they will improve because their offense will improve. They’ll be back to beating up on lesser teams and the occasional series win against really good teams, so they’ll flirt more with .500, but will very likely fall short of the playoffs again. However, if they find the right manager for this team and they do actually begin to overachieve, then all bets are off.
