Ron Washington postgame quotes from Texas' World Series Game 3 loss

Rangers manager Ron Washington on Scott Feldman:

"Well, we certainly wanted to get more out of him, but we got back in the ballgame 8-6. And when Ogando couldn't come in and get it done, the we knew we were in trouble right there."

On Alexi Ogando:

"Well, he's a strong kid, and no one felt worse than Ogando when he didn't get the job done. But it's our job to make sure that his confidence don't wane. No, we've got his back and he got a ball up to Albert (Pujols) and he didn't miss it. You know, he certainly after that just couldn't command the baseball."

On the missed call at first base in the fourth inning:

"He missed the play and I knew he missed the play when I went out there. We still had an opportunity to get off the field with maybe them just pushing one run across the plate. We just didn't make the plays. I don't think you can just start all of a sudden making excuses about things. We had a chance to get them off the field without scoring one run in that inning right there. And we just threw the ball around in that inning and it really messed up (Matt) Harrison's outing because he was throwing the ball well."

On pitching to Albert Pujols:

"I just hope that we can make him chase some stuff, not put stuff in the wrong spot and get it up in the zone and get it out over the plate. When the opportunity presents itself to put him on the bag, I'm not going to let him swing the bat."

On Mike Napoli's throwing error at first base:

"I think any baseball player in the world could have made that bad throw, not because it was Napoli."

On whether he'll make a change at first:

"We'll see tomorrow."

Do you have an editor?! You should be embarrassed...


I think Josh Hamilton should pull himself out of the game. He can't hit and he can't run. He is hurting the team.
