Sports Illustrated is reporting that Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington tested positive for cocaine during the 2009 season. In their brief report, the network mentioned that the Rangers organization decided to stand behind Washington -- obviously there was no suspension for it because we would have heard of it last summer.

The Rangers are holding a press conference at 1:00. We'll have more information then.
