Nolan Ryan addresses reporters this afternoon at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
In a crowded room deep within the substratum of Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, team president-turned-CEO Nolan Ryan tried to cast Chuck Greenberg's surprising departure this morning in a positive light heading into the new season.

Leaving after only seven months with the organization, Ryan did little to answer questions about Greenberg's leaving.

"Chuck has a lot of passion for the game, but I am not looking to speculate," Ryan said. Instead, Ryan focused on what he felt would lead the Rangers in a more positive direction as the opening for the season is just three short weeks away.

"I would rather have these changes take place before the season starts, so that we may be ready for opening day."

With the former Ranger now at the wheel, Ryan affirmed that the energy that led the team to become last season's AL champions will continue under his leadership.

Repeat after me "Don't fvck with Nolan Ryan". Ryan is creating a new culture at the Texas Rangers. Anyone who is not on board, is out. It may not be the "right" culture, but the old one clearly did not work.

I could have sworn that Chuck was the new culture and Nolan was more like the old culture(see communication issues with players). I guess I had it all wrong.
