"“Tim is well regarded, and he has the respect of his peers and players,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Friday according to ESPN Dallas. “Hard-working, organized, knowledgeable about the game, respect among the staff — and he was a natural choice to manage the club down the stretch.”"
Tim didn’t get a lot of help from his pitching staff, also just like Ron Washington. I have the feeling that he will not be the Rangers manager come 2015, but I think he will get a shot to interview. He has just 22 games with a sub par team to prove that he is the man for the job, and that is asking a lot of anyone. Ron Washington took the Rangers to back to back World Series and he couldn’t get this team to perform in 2014.
It takes talent, teamwork and a little luck to win in the big leagues, and the Rangers have one of these things; talent. Don’t get me wrong, the core of this team is a tight knit group, but overall they do not really know each other and now Tim Bogar has to try and manage a bunch of shocked players. It’s not a job that would be easy for a seasoned veteran manager, never-mind a guy that has never managed in the majors.
I think Tim Bogar will do the best he can with what he has, but my thoughts are that the Tim Bogar era will be a short era indeed. Do you think I am wrong? Let me know!
