NEWBERG REPORT UPDATE — OCTOBER 18, 2006
Ron Washington interviewed for the Rangers’ managerial post yesterday, a six-hour session that kicked off the club’s plans to sit down with the five candidates they have pinpointed to succeed Buck Showalter. John Russell is set to interview tomorrow, and Manny Acta and Trey Hillman will follow as their post-season schedules permit. Don Wakamatsu will get the fifth and final interview, after which the candidate list will be narrowed down for further discussions.
I’ve been tied up with some things the past few days but will get you a new Newberg Report on Thursday morning to talk about this and some other Ranger-related news and thoughts. Thanks for your patience.
