Nolan Ryan's deal with the Rangers got finished yesterday, so that's the big story in the papers this morning...

Evan Grant says selling more tickets is one of the big things on Ryan's plate, with the Rangers seeing a precipitous drop in attendance since 2005. Of course, 2005 was the year after the Rangers' surprising playoff push, and winning generally drives an attendance increase the following year...and as Ryan acknowledges, putting a competitive club on the field does more than anything else to get fans in.

Anthony Andro also talks about Ryan's taking the reins, with Ryan wanting to get up to speed on the on-field personnel...

Randy Galloway doesn't understand why Ryan would want the job.

And JJ-T says Ryan has to show he isn't a figurehead...

The S-T's spring notes this morning include Kam Loe talking about snake ownership...

And Brandon McCarthy and Kevin Millwood threw with no problems yesterday...
