Tom Hicks issues statement for goodbye as Rangers owner

Aug 13, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

Now that the Rangers sale is finally complete, longtime owner Tom Hicks issued the following statement saying, more or less, goodbye:

Obviously, this is a bittersweet moment for our family because these past 12 years with the Rangers have produced a remarkable experience for all of us. I sincerely think the two major turning points in this franchise involved naming Jon Daniels general manager and Nolan Ryan becoming club president.

Chuck Greenberg and Nolan take control of a club that is well-positioned to compete, not only this year but for many years to come. There is much that we will miss; however, this sale has produced an outcome that is positive for the Texas Rangers, Major League Baseball and even for the lenders.

Most importantly, a strong leadership team will be in place to help guide the franchise to the next level. I look forward to joining all the other Rangers fans that cheer for this team to have success come October.

Something tells me if Hicks actually joins “all the other Rangers fans” in October he won’t be hearing a whole lot of cheering in his section.

    Cheering? Hell, even his mistress will bail on him if she sees a foul ball heading in his direction.

    Liverpool fans read Hicks’ statement with tears in their eyes.

    Around these parts, rumor has it that he’s not allowed in the Ballpark. I guess he’ll be watching at his local watering hole…
