The Texas Rangers received permission from Oakland yesterday to interview Athletics third-base coach Ron Washington for their managerial opening. The Rangers fired Buck Showalter last week after his fourth season as skipper. Texas was 80-82 this season, its sixth losing record in seven years since it last made the playoffs in 1999. Lou Piniella has spoken to the Rangers about the job. San Diego released infielders Mark Bellhorn and Manny Alexander and righthander Scott Williamson, and claimed lefthander Justin Hampson from Colorado.

Don't get your O's hopes up Buck Showalter becomes the Baltimore manager, and the Orioles win their first four games under their third skipper of the season. Here's the good news for Orioles fans: Success is par for the Showalter course. In stints with the New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Texas Rangers, he has built teams into contenders. AL manager of the year awards in 1994 and 2004 attest to his ability. The bad news is, history shows that teams have gone on to bigger things after firing Showalter.

SOMEWHERE CBS sports producers are cringing. The NCAA Tournament starts up next week, which means the return of Charles Barkley to the studio. Chuck has been on board since 2011 when CBS and Turner struck a deal to carry the tournament until 2024. As usual, all 67 games will been televised by CBS, TNT, TBS or TruTV. This year, Barkley will be on the New York set with Ernie Johnson, Clark Kellogg and Kenny Smith. And, as any Sixers fans know, things can get interesting with Barkley in the house.

Andruw Jones could stick with the Texas Rangers through spring training, even though he won't be a starter and there is no guarantee of him making the team. During a meeting yesterday with general manager Jon Daniels and manager Ron Washington, the five-time All-Star said he would be willing to remain with Texas as a backup outfielder and part-time designated hitter. "We've told Andruw that he won't start for us," Daniels said. "He responded by expressing a desire to be here in any role we need him. The Rangers will continue to discuss the situation.

SAN FRANCISCO - Minutes after the unmitigated disaster had ended, Vladimir Guerrero sat facing his locker in the visitors' clubhouse at AT&T Park and softly answered questions in Spanish. A future Hall of Famer, Guerrero had played 14 seasons without ever playing on the game's biggest stage, the World Series. So here he was, embarrassed by his performance in the game he had dreamed of playing. "What happened out there . . . I cannot put my head down," the Texas Rangers veteran said through an interpreter after Texas' 11-7 loss on Wednesday.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington says he's put behind him Roy Oswalt's decision not to pitch a third inning of relief and sees no need to discuss it with the former starter. Oswalt told Washington after throwing 30 pitches in the seventh and eighth innings Sunday that he couldn't continue. The Rangers lost, 7-6, in 10 innings at Kansas City. "Since I've been here [if] a player tells me he can't go, that's it," Washington said before Monday night's game against the Red Sox in Boston.

Texas manager Ron Washington was certainly impressed as he watched Yu Darvish flirt with perfection Tuesday night in Houston. He was even more blown away when he saw a television replay of the Japanese star coming within an out of the second perfect game in Rangers history. "It wasn't as nasty looking from the side as it was when I saw it on TV," Washington said Wednesday. "He was nasty. I mean, his ball was moving all over the place. . . . To watch it after the fact, I said he was dominating.

At least this time Michael Young had the opportunity to hit for the cycle. Two seasons ago, as a member of the Texas Rangers, Young had already singled, doubled, and tripled when it was his turn to hit in the eighth inning of a game against the Baltimore Orioles. Instead, Rangers manager Ron Washington sent Mike Napoli to the plate as a pinch-hitter because he thought Young had two doubles and a single. "I screwed that one up," Washington said that night. Young, the consummate professional, said the at-bat was more important to Napoli because he had just returned from a 22-day stint on the disabled list and he maintained that was the case two years later.

HOUSTON - Yu Darvish was one out from a perfect game when Marwin Gonzalez grounded a clean single through the pitcher's legs, and the Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros, 7-0, on Tuesday night. The celebrated righthander from Japan struck out 14 and appeared to be in complete control before Gonzalez smacked the first pitch up the middle. Darvish was unable to get his glove down in time and the ball skittered into center field well beyond a desperate dive by shortstop Elvis Andrus.

Free-agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski has passed a physical, clearing the way for a 1-year deal with the Texas Rangers. A person familiar with the deal said Pierzynski had a physical Friday and everything was OK. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Rangers had not added Pierzynski to their 40-man roster. With the Major League Baseball office closed for Christmas, the roster move won't be made until at least later this week. The Rangers don't have an open spot on their 40-man roster after claiming lefthanded reliever Jeff Beliveau on waivers from the Chicago Cubs earlier in the day. The deal for Pierzynski comes after the Rangers lost catcher Mike Napoli in free agency.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Texas Rangers are back in the American League Championship Series and waiting for an opponent. This is a team that didn't win a postseason series in the franchise's first 49 seasons before getting to the World Series last year. Now the Rangers have advanced in the playoffs two years in a row. "We committed ourselves to a goal [last spring], and they made it to that goal; we are getting another opportunity to play to go to the World Series," manager Ron Washington said Wednesday, a day after the Rangers wrapped up their AL division series with a 4-3 victory at Tampa Bay. "I don't see where it gives us any advantage," he said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Cliff Lee could have been no worse. We should have found out. It was madness, for the Rangers not to start Lee in Game 4 last night. Instead, they started a 24-year-old offensive lineman who didn't last past the fourth inning in either of his previous playoff starts, which is exactly what happened last night. Tommy Hunter took the loss in the 4-0 decision that put the Rangers a game from elimination. Now, Hunter can pitch, make no mistake. Just not lately.
