Resume: Won back-to-back American League pennants with the Texas Rangers
The man in this picture not named Ron Gardenhire will also be a name attached to the Phillies job; former Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington.
Taking the Rangers to back-to-back American League pennants Washington kept the Rangers in the playoff race with four consecutive seasons with 90 wins.
Personal transgressions involving an affair and drug abuse forced Washington to resign late into the 2014 season. Now serving as the Braves third base coach Washington looks ready to jump back in the manager’s chair.
