Ryan still confident the Rangers will be his...ALL HIS (bwa ha ha)

There's an AP article this morning getting Nolan Ryan's reaction to the judge's ruling that the Rangers will have to change their bankruptcy plan before giving ownership to the Ryan-Greenberg group (which of course has an effect on Roy's trade chances in Arlington).

"We're still confident that we're going to get the deal done. We're still in the process, so we'll just have to wait and see, but we've been kind of in this position for quite a while now. It's just part of the process, and it's out of our control. So we just basically deal with what we deal with on a day-to-day basis of running the ballclub and just wait and see what actually happens. I don't look at anything as being a setback unless something else comes up that we're unaware of...

...I know the judge doesn't want the bankruptcy to encumber us anymore than it absolutely has to, so I think he's quite aware of what goes on in baseball. So I think he's going to try and do what he can to make sure that we're not penalized."
