ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington showed us Tuesday why his players continually rave about him.

Washington showed us why they play so hard -- except for you-know-who during the season's last three weeks -- for him and why they buy whatever the manager sells.

It's because Washington credits the players for everything that goes well and eagerly accepts the blame when things go poorly.

He did it again at the Rangers' end-of-the-season news conference.

Read why Washington's accountability makes him the Rangers' ideal manager here.
