 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Nolan Ryan says he let speculation about his future with the Texas Rangers go on for weeks because he ``needed to visit'' with owners Bob Simpson and Ray Davis to get a betting understanding of his role in the front office.
The Hall of Fame pitcher's radio appearance Monday was his first interview since Ryan ended the uncertainty by announcing in a statement April 10 that he was staying as chief executive officer.
Ryan's statement came almost six weeks after the club announced he was no longer team president. General manager Jon Daniels and chief operating officer Rick George were promoted and given presidential titles.
Ryan says he now has a better idea of his role and ``everything's going smoothly.''
