Padres doing due diligence on Ron Washington for managerial opening

Jon Heyman says that the Padres are doing “due diligence” on Braves third base coach Ron Washington as a possible candidate for their vacant manager job.

Washington managed the Texas Rangers from 2007 into 2014, winning two pennants and compiling a record of 664-611 (.521). Throughout that time current Padres general manager A.J. Preller was in the Rangers front office, so he is familiar with Washington and his work.

So it seems to be shaping up as:

Padres: Washington
Royals: matheny
Cubs: girardi
Mets: Beltran
Phillies: Showalter
Giants: unknown
Angels: Maddon

I could see girardi with mets, Ross with cubs and Beltran with giants

Anyone can manage. Tell'em Wash.

Preller: We want you to manage the Padres.
Washington: I've only ever managed the Rangers.
Preller: It's not that hard, Ron. Tell him, Andy.
Green: It's incredibly hard.
