Jeff Wilson writes that Nolan Ryan is fired up about the Rangers' starting rotation, and has some quotes from Ryan with praise of Yu Darvish.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Nolan Ryan has faith in the Rangers' resilience.

Drew Davison has some notes in the S-T that includes quotes from Nolan Ryan, who had this to say on a Josh Hamilton contract extension:

Asked if he'd be OK giving Hamilton a long-term deal, Ryan said: "Oh, I can't go into that. There are so many factors that come into play when you talk about long-term contracts, it doesn't matter who it is.

"At this point in time, everybody just decided that we'll let things settle out before we go anywhere."

Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes that Nolan Ryan believes the Rangers have moved past the disappointment of Game Six and another World Series defeat.

Anthony Andro has a piece on Ryan's comments yesterday.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Ryan Talkin', with stuff on Darvish, the World Series hangover, and Ryan's belief that the Rangers are better now than they were last year at this time.

Sullivan breaks down the pitchers who are in the Rangers' spring camp, and also has a story on the Rangers' major league pitching depth.

Derek Holland says that, while he has fun off the field, on the field, he's serious.

Mitch Moreland says he's not far behind where he normally would be after his offseason surgery.

Richard Durrett has his six things of note from yesterday at Surprise.

Andro has a story on new Ranger closer Joe Nathan.

Kevin Goldstein talked to Bryan Dolgin about the Rangers' system.

Andro's notes includes stuff on Neftali Feliz as starter, Mike Napoli's ankle, and Tony Fernandez, the team's new special assistant to the g.m.

Sullivan's notes talk about Nathan, Colby Lewis, Tanner Scheppers, and the new practice field entrance.
