The primary shortstop on the 1982 Twins, and the primary utility infielder on the team for the next four seasons, Washington is now, of course, the manager of the AL Champion Texas Rangers. This was a good year for Ronnie. As much as any of the players, he looked like he was having the time of his life during the 2010 playoffs. It was glorious watching him oust the Yankees in the ALCS. For me, it even numbed a little bit of the pain from the Yankees first round sweep of the Twins.
