Rangers president Nolan Ryan said he will wait to see if he would remain with the club until learning how things would unfold if Jim Crane were to become owner of the team.
Ryan said his partner, Chuck Greenberg, is working to tweak the bid they submitted to Tom Hicks last week. That could include adding money to the deal or making more cash available up front.
Ryan said he was surprised when Crane, the Houston businessman, called him last week and said he had resubmitted another bid. Crane told Ryan that he would like for the Hall of Fame pitcher to remain with the team if Crane's bid is recommended by Hicks.
"He said he'd like me to continue with him, and we'll have to see how all this shakes out and evaluate from there," Ryan said.
