You ever want to be in a clubhouse before Game 7 of the World Series? Well, the website JoeSportsFan.com has you covered, as they were able to get an audio recording of Rangers manager Ron Washington's pre game speech to his team.

Warning -- there is quite a bit of explicit language, do not click if you're easily (or even moderately) offended by bad language, including the F word and several other naughty words.

Things didn't turn out like Washington or his team wanted, but you can see why his players like him. I'm sure some fans -- especially Cardinals fans -- will take issue with things he said, but keep in mind this is supposed to be private and between just the players and coaches, it's not supposed to be for public consumption, even if now the public is consuming it.

This is the pros man......this isn't jr high school, you think these players moms are going to come to Wash and tell him not to use profane language. These are full grown men, they've heard this before. You obviously never played organized sports. And in baseball? Are you kidding me...it's worse than football. True not everyone coaches like this but to say that Wash has to talk like that to fire up his team? C'mon man......SEROIUSLY?<br />

That speech is an embarrassment. He sounds like an 8th grade small forward ready to play for the YMCA championship. I am embarrasssed for him. That is small time and adolescent.

no big deal. i'm sure the cardinals were saying the same thing. it was something that was supposed to be private but got leaked out. at least this shows the team were not pantsies after a loss like that. then you would have problems.

Washington has admitted to using drugs as recent as a few years ago....and we all know that's one of the reasons why Billy Beane did not hire him. Also he has a potty mouth. If I wanted to hire a potty mouthed guy to run a team it would be the Oakland Raiders, Boston Red Sox or SF Giants. The A's are too young and naive to even know any curse words or any other words that would make a grandmother blush. Washington would corrupted some very impressionable minds....and Beane would not allow that to happen.

Perhaps Washington was trying to light a fire under his players feet/butts because he was worried that if he lost the Seires that he would be fired soon.

Do not worry Washington....history has shown that you don't get fired right away for losing, but one season later when the GM has found someone he likes to replace you...that and the fact that you just signed an extension. Washington, if you did not recently sign an extension then you have nothing to worry about!

It almost sounds like someone is sniffing something lol.... maybe that's why the lost, Hamilton & Washington went back to there old coke sniffin ways....

jokes aside, doesn't seem like a very inspiring speech before game 7 of the world series.
