Nolan Ryan: Can't wait on Josh Hamilton

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan said the club can't afford to wait most of the offseason on Josh Hamilton to make a decision.

"What you're going to have to do is I don't think you can sit around and say, 'We have to wait and see what happens with Josh,' " Ryan said to a small media gathering on Wednesday at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. "We'll get a feel here shortly where we think that might be going, but also we have to be out there seeing what opportunities are out there, whether there's opportunities to improve the club.

"If you sit back and wait, you might miss an opportunity you might regret or feel like you could have done something and didn't get it done."
