Washington Uses Week To Rebuild

By  | 

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton put
on an impressive power display at Yankee Stadium during this week's
Home Run Derby.
Michael Young drove home the winning run for the American League
in the All-Star Game.
Meanwhile, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington spent the
All-Star break -- rebuilding.
It's been nearly three years since Hurricane Katrina slammed the
Gulf coast.
Washington is still putting the finishing touches on his
flood-ravaged home in New Orleans, the one he and his wife have had
for 27 years.
Washington's job seemed in jeopardy after Texas lost 16 of its
first 23 games.
The Rangers, outscored 37-10 in three games at Detroit, were
already seven games back in the AL West.
But new team president Nolan Ryan and general manager Jon
Daniels waited to see how the team would respond to adversity.
The Rangers (50-46) have since won 16 of their last 23 series -
not games - with three splits.
There are 66 regular season games left.
