STAYING AT THE RANCH: Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan yesterday discussed his decision to stay with the franchise despite losing the title of team president this spring. He said, "I felt like I needed to visit with (co-Chairs) Bob Simpson and Ray Davis and get a better feel for what their vision of the ballclub was and where we were going as far as going forward, and what role I would play in that. I think it took us a while to get there, but I feel like that we have a much better understanding now than we did this offseason and during Spring Training." Ryan said he feels his relationship with President of Baseball Operations & GM Jon Daniels and the rest of the front office is "going smoothly." He acknowledged he thought about resigning, saying, "You have good days and bad days, and there's things that come into play that affects your thought process." But Ryan added everybody now "has a better feel for what our different roles are, so I would say things are good" ("Galloway & Company," ESPN Radio 103.3 Dallas, 5/13).
