Texas Rangers Notes: Ron Washington Extension, Roy Oswalt Meeting Today

NEW YORK - JUNE 11: Roy Oswalt #44 of the Houston Astros looks on prior to a game against the New York Yankees on June 11 2010 in the Bronx borough of New York City. According to reports on July 29 2010 Oswalt will waive his no-trade clause and be traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for J.A. Happ and two prospects. (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)

The Texas Rangers have signed Ron Washington to a 2-year contract extension, keeping him on staff through at least 2014, according to John Blake.

In other Rangers' notes, we're awaiting word from the meeting between Roy Oswalt and the club that was scheduled for today, but in the meantime Dave Cameron of FanGraphs makes a pointed critique of the flirtation happening here:

"No team in baseball needs a starting pitcher less than the Texas Rangers."
