Nolan Ryan Issued a Written Statement...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: ...through the Texas Rangers that pretty much says that they're working on figuring out what the heck he's supposed to do as CEO only after being stripped of the title and responsibility of President of Baseball Operations.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: ...that at the very least means he's still with the team.  For now

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Why do I get the feeling that the statement is Nolan Ryan and the ownership trying to buy time to figure out a way out of what will be a public relations fiasco/disaster if Nolan Ryan is not a part of the organization going forward?  And/or it's buying more time for ownership and Nolan Ryan to negotiate his buyout.  And guess what Texas Rangers ownership, namely Ray Davis and Bob Simpson?  Now every fan knows your names, you may not want that if you're both  responsible for running fan-favorite Nolan Ryan out of the organization and out of town.

Here's the statement released by Nolan Ryan that says essentially, stay tuned:

“Over the last week, Ray Davis, Bob Simpson, and I have been in discussion and met in-person. The conversations have been productive, and we have discussed my role as CEO of the organization. We agreed these discussions will continue as we go forward.
"I am very proud of what the Rangers have accomplished over the last several years, and I believe our preparations for upcoming season are what is important."
