Chuck Greenberg > Tom Hicks. Texas Rangers = Texas Rangers?

Lots of positives on the sale of your Texas Rangers from Tom Hicks to Pittsburgh sports attorney Chuck Greenberg.

*First and foremost, Hicks will be a minority voice, but one with zero say on trading, hiring, firing or signing players, coaches or employees.

*Nolan Ryan remains the face of the franchise, with the final authority on baseball decisions.

*Greenberg promises to spend money. "We will have money in the budget. Money will not stop us."

*Greenberg will serve as managing partner CEO, leaving the baseball to baseball people. "I will not interject myself into the baseball operations."

*By the way, Greenberg's first partner last winter was former Dallas Mavericks minority owner David McDavid. If that name rings a bell, it should.

*On the Rangers' off-season radar: Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome and Jermaine Dye. Wow.

Thumbs up. I've heard enough.

Still, will a different owner equate to different results in Arlington?
