Ed Wade reassures us, "We'll have a Triple-A team somewhere."

What with Nolan Ryan's impending purchase of the Texas Rangers, Kirk Bohls tells us that the most immediate impact could be in Round Rock, which will likely become the Rangers' Triple-A team.

A friend, and business associate of Ryan:
"I think it's going to happen."

Reid Ryan:
"Everybody sees an opportunity there, but it puts us in an awkward situation. At the end of the year, we're going to evaluate the situation. We want to do what's in the best interests of our business, our family, the fans and everybody. With Nolan being a managing partner and a majority owner of the Express, there's a lot of synergy there."

Ed Wade:
We'd love to be here (in Round Rock) forever. We're aware of the changes in Nolan's role with Texas. You'd have to ask the Ryans. We'll be someplace."

I don't know why, but this really pisses me off.

Agreed. Especially after all of the "it doesn't matter if Nolan goes to the Rangers, his affiliates are happy with the Astros and aren't changing" talk.
