A few things to takeaway from this Reid Ryan Press Conference:
*Ryan: If we take care of the fans, the fans will take care of us.
*Ryan: Baseball is Jeff's department. I'm here to support him. If Jeff wants my advice, I'll give it.
*Jim Crane is meeting with Larry Dierker on Monday. *Crane on Ryan: He'll be holding most of the press conferences, not me, and I'm very happy about that.
Reid Ryan has signed a three-year contract with Jim Crane and the Astros. Crane: It's just a standard deal. Gives him some security. Lets family get focused in the community. We'll certainly work beyond that. I've seen him in action. I've seen how good he is and that's why I wanted him.
