Richie Whitt’s Theory On How The Rangers Will Replace Ron Washington

Richie Whitt of the Dallas Observer has a new sports blog called Sportatorium.   He comes out swinging.

“The Dallas Observer– via this here The Sportatorium sports blog – has learned from separate sources that the Rangers have held preliminary – if not more serious – talks with Don Baylor, Mike Hargrove, Jim Tracy and Jackie Moore about being Washington’s successor. At least one version of the inevitable overhaul, temporarily put on pause by the team’s recent uptick, includes the firing of all assistant coaches other than hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo and third base coach Matt Walbeck.”
