10.25: Rangers Workout -- Ron Washington
"The two best teams are going to be playing, and that's what it's about..."
A very solid team. They can certainly pitch. And when you get to this point new year pitching is really the most important thing. They can do that. They showed that. They can stand ball games in they can get timely hits and that's dangerous also so. Very very very good cloak. It well managed. Whose -- -- And the two best teams there are going to be playing. And that's what it's about. Well we we had two veterans. You know met we picked up from Milwaukee in spring training in he had an opportunity to walk we need it make how close. But he committed itself to us and because of the way things with wind early in the season with so T and T Gordon earth. We were very fortunate that we had a guy of both of his standard two to step in. And continue to don't -- young pitching staff get through season. And then that there trading deadline we were fortunate enough to pick up. A catcher with of the caliber of Molina and you know as he came advertised. He certainly have been just that so. Go to those two guys who have been very important. Two. -- progress and success to this point. And you know Texas Rangers this year has been her fortune in and the things that they've done to try to help this club do it is. Is doing right now. What is gonna benefit us tremendously. And picking his brain that's one thing we haven't had to do since we've been Cleo which means. He's opened up. He certainly. It's proving that. He certain quality backs stopper. His knowledge you. How to. You know pitching staff through innings and his knowledge of how to attack hitters and definitely come to a 44 and so. It will be key. And we certainly will sit down and who tried to. -- through every scenario that we possibly can force there it is schools. As fours there weaknesses or. And and once the games are you do we have to do. Or you know you can really all you when you get today batter's box and each one of those guys -- on their own. We'll have a plan. And we were trotted certainly execute no plan. But. Each pitcher we face. Each hitter will have their own problems dealing with and so. But anything you can learn anything that you can find out in -- patterns are in the way you like to do in certain situations. We will all of that. Well. Really haven't sit down and talked about yet but you can best believe we'll figure out a way to get play in there. In the starting lineup some currently. When that opportunity presents itself. We react to it. I love playing national league baseball do. You know -- get every single person engaged with little different in American League we went through improved series here. He vision -- championship series were there some guys didn't get a chance to play. Now everybody's available. Because there will be certain moves then have to be made. You know. Yes. I don't know yet haven't decide. I just for baseball and we'll put it whichever way we have to. We certainly have the -- for -- National League style. And we have played three of American weeks oh. That's just that's the name of baseball game baseball with about adjustments and we just have to make some adjustments and we will. Yeah idea. Nor watched about myself and of course my wife with him and how it I sit there and -- myself. The pitching do. One swing -- -- bat which San Francisco's been doing quite often. -- --
