12:21 PM ET 03.02 | Rangers ownership made a move on Friday that could trickle down all the way to Kyle Lohse. The owners concluded two days of meetings by beefing up Jon Daniels' title. He is now the president of baseball operations/general manager. That ownership added president to Daniels' job description is telling. The move recognizes Daniels' growth and the outstanding leadership group he has put together. What does this mean for this year's club? Plenty. Daniels has a roster problem that ownership can help solve with a bump in the payroll. Kyle Lohse, a right-hander, would improve the Rangers' rotation and bullpen. All it takes is money. And if ownership thinks as highly of Daniels as it seems, this is a good time for him to cash in on that goodwill and request a larger payroll.

The article fell to mention where Ryan now stands in decision making and running the every day operations of the ball club in Arlington.

If you are a Cards fan you are hoping he signs with the Rangers for the draft pick.

If he's a restricted free agent, take the pick!
