    Most of the local sports media hacks here in N. Texas are saying that this move was Tom Hicks' way of putting more butts in the seats. People outside of Texas might not realize just how popular the Ryan Express is in The Great State Of Texas.

    Hope he stays on the job longer than Dan Marino.

    Well he did get more accurate as he got older...

    If it was anyone else it would look like a clear promotion for successful job performance...

    Hasn't most of the talent on the winning teams in recent years that have come up through his teams?

    Certainly a good p.r. move by the Rangers.

    I personally have no idea how to feel about this. Other than Nolan being back with Texas I don't know enough about anything to have an opinion.

    I just felt the only Rangers fan here should should post in the thread.

    We can only hope that if this Ryan experiment goes well, it can be followed up by Cal Ripken leading the group that purchases the Orioles. (Soon, please!)

    We shall see soon enough.

    Plus the Corpus Christi Hooks, which play in the Class AA Texas League.

    damn it!!! Rangers steal Ryan from the Astros again!!!
    I guess the Astros let him out of his personal service contract.
    He just finished his duties at the elite pitching and hitting camp at minute maid park this week.

    Great talent doesn't always make for a great administrator, but with the Rangers struggling as much as they have in recent years, especially with pitching, it's worth a shot. Hopefully he'll have an eye for great young talent.
