Ron Washington looks like the kind of guy you'd love to sit down and have a beer with. And if he'd prefer a Dr. Pepper instead, that'd be alright, too.
Washington recently signed a two-year extension to his contract, and no matter how much Nolan Ryan is paying him, it's not enough.
With Washington in the manager's seat, the Rangers are practically guaranteed another try at the World Series. But more importantly, that means he's going to be staying around Dallas for another couple of years, which means the chances are good of bumping into him and getting to sit down and chat about life, baseball and New Orleans jazz.
And what would be the first thing I'd ask him?
"Hey Ron, you wanna beer?"
(Gosh, I can't believe you didn't see that coming!)
