According to a report on 105.3 FM The Fan, general manager Jon Daniels and CEO Nolan Ryan were apparently moments away from coming to blows during a meeting last week and had to be separated by manager Ron Washington.

However, hours after that report came out, others began to pick it apart with other sources who told The Fan’s afternoon show, Ben and Skin, that incident never happened.

Whatever happened in that room is not for us to know or really care about, but it doesn’t mean we didn’t cover it on this addition of our podcast.

We also talked about the holes this team has offensively and whether or not they need to add another piece or two to their rotation or bullpen.

That and chasing after a $300 million man on this addition of Scooping the Texas Rangers Podcast.
