Ryan the new GM?

From Poochie over at the ESPNDFW:


Greenberg will be involved in the day-to-day operations, but Ryan runs the team on the field. "Nolan is going to have complete authority on the baseball side," Greenberg said. "I have the utmost confidence in him." That's pretty clear. Greenberg later said that Ryan would be the first guy on a Rangers Mount Rushmore and that he knows all the nice things fans are saying about him are because Ryan is in his group and fans are saying "if Nolan thinks he's a good guy, maybe he's a good guy."

 

Greenberg was asked if he would share his opinion at a baseball operations meeting. He said that wasn't his role. "My role is to have great people in positions of authority and create an environment that encourages them to be their best and let them do their job," Greenberg said. "Fortunately, when it comes to the baseball side, the Rangers are in a tremendous position. To have the judgment, wisdom and personal touch of Nolan Ryan and the tremendous group JD [Jon Daniels] has assembled, the Rangers on the baseball side are the envy of every franchise in baseball in terms of talent. It's not broke, so I won't try to fix it. I'm not going to inject myself in a way that it interferes with outstanding people doing their job."

If Ryan is going to have complete authority on the baseball side, doesn't that supplant JD as GM?
